Lettieri put pen to paper on a one-year contract with the Rangers on Wednesday. Lettieri split time between leagues last season, as he saw action in 27 NHL and 48 minor-league contests. The 24-year-old was a point per game player with the Wolf Pack, but managed a mere three points while averaging 10:09 of ice time with the Rangers. The center is far from a lock for the 23-man roster Opening Night against the Jets on Oct. 3, but a strong showing in camp could earn him a spot.
The Rangers handed Lettieri a qualifying offer Tuesday. Lettieri didn't have much success with the big club this season, tallying three points in 27 appearances, but he was highly productive during his time with AHL Hartford, racking up 23 goals and 48 points in 48 games. The University of Minnesota product will get a chance to compete for a spot on the Rangers' Opening Night roster during training camp.
The Rangers reassigned Lettieri to AHL Hartford on Sunday. Lettieri drew into 27 games with the big club this season, posting three points and a minus-7 rating. He'll be a restricted free agent this summer, and the Rangers figure to hold onto him and give him another shot to make the team next season.
Lettieri was promoted from AHL Hartford on Monday. Lettieri has failed to find the scoresheet in 18 games with the Rangers this season. At the minor-league level, the winger has been far more impactful in 2018-19, scoring 22 goals and putting up 46 points in 44 appearances.
Lettieri was reassigned to AHL Hartford on Wednesday. The 24-year-old played in two games following his call up but only managed to register two shots on goal and was a minus-1. Lettieri has been up and down between the minors and NHL this year.
