Rangers sign Fontaine to Entry Level Deal


Gabriel Fontaine has signed an entry-level deal with the New York Rangers, the NHL club announced on April 10.

Fontaine had his 2016-17 QMJHL season come to an early end when his Rouyn Noranda Huskies were eliminated from further playoff action.

The six-foot-one Fontaine was a sixth round pick of the Rangers at last June’s NHL Entry Draft. This season with the Huskies he registered 52 points in 59 games.

Fontaine was fourth on the Huskies in points this year.

The 19-year-old Fontaine just wrapped up his third full season in the QMJHL.
