RPI junior Ryan Haggerty forgoes final season to sign with New York Rangers

RPI's Houston Fieldhouse

Madison Square Garden is just a short train ride from Haggerty's hometown of Stamford, Conn.

The New York Rangers have signed RPI junior forward Ryan Haggerty to an entry-level contract, meaning the Engineers leading scorer will forgo his final season of collegiate eligibility.

The Stamford, Conn. native saw his production increase in each of his three seasons at the upstate New York school. A product of the US NTDP, Haggerty found the back of the net 28 times and added 15 assists this winter. The Engineers started off strongly, but had an up-and-down season, finishing 15-16-6.

Haggerty will reportedly join the Rangers as soon as this weekend, according to several sources. The Engineers were ousted from the ECAC Tournament by Dartmouth last weekend. RPI, the seven seed entering the conference playoffs, lost at home in three games to the 10th seeded Big Green. Haggerty had four goals and an assist over the three games.
