Fogarty signed a one-year contract extension with the Rangers on Monday, Jim Cerny of Sporting News reports.
Rangers GM Jeff Gorton has been busy making moves ahead of the trade deadline -- aside from the Fogarty transaction, he's traded top-six contributor Kevin Hayes to the Jets and also extended Boo Nieves' contract. Still, Fogarty isn't a viable fantasy play since he's still searching for his first point through 11 games at the top level and remains in the minors with AHL Hartford.
Fogarty tallied a hat trick and added in assist to lead AHL Hartford to a 4-1 victory over Providence on Sunday.
The Wolf Pack are extremely banged up and Fogarty is taking full advantage of his extra ice time. Primarily known as a penalty killer and depth player prior to this season, the Notre Dame product now has 17 goals and 39 points in 47 games for Hartford. Fogarty has good size (6-foot-3, 210 pounds) and terrific hockey IQ. His skating is well below-average but he does everything else well. He stands a chance of carving out an NHL career as a bottom-six center.
Fogarty was reassigned to AHL Hartford on Tuesday.
Fogarty drew into 10 straight contests for the Rangers, though he topped 10 minutes of ice time just once over that stretch. The 25-year-old pivot will take his talents back to an AHL Hartford squad where he sports 14 points -- seven goals and seven assists -- over 19 games this season.

Fogarty has seen an uptick in his offensive production at the AHL level this season, already scoring seven goals and 14 points in 18 games. During the 2016-17 and 2017-18 campaigns, he scored exactly 20 points in each while playing in over 60 games. A third-round pick in 2011, Fogarty has just one game of NHL experience under his belt.
Fogarty accepted a qualifying offer for the 2018-19 season with the Rangers on Monday.
Fogarty has just one NHL appearance in his career, logging a couple penalty minutes but held off the scoresheet elsewhere. Over the last two years with AHL Hartford, he's tallied 16 goals and 40 points. If the 25-year-old does crack the NHL roster, he won't have a very productive role in the Rangers forward group.

Fogarty made his NHL debut last season, but he still has just one game of experience at the highest level. The 25-year-old center will battle for a roster spot in camp, but his most likely destination is AHL Hartford, where he's logged back-to-back 20-point campaigns.
Fogarty was held scoreless in his NHL debut Saturday, but he recorded two PIM and a pair of hits over 12:16 of ice time in the 5-0 road loss to the Flyers. After the game, the Rangers reassigned him to AHL Hartford, according to TSN.
The Rangers had no chance at getting into the playoffs with this game, so they took advantage of an opportunity to get a sneak peek at Fogarty, who the team drafted with a 2011 third-round (72nd overall) pick. He wasn't directly impacted by the Flyers' scoring barrage that helped Philly clinch a playoff berth, and Fogarty was assertive in limited action. Something tells us we'll see a lot more of him next season.
Fogarty was recalled from AHL Hartford on Friday.
This is Fogarty's first time being called up to the NHL since signing his contract with the Rangers in 2016. However, the 24-year-old didn't exactly light the world on fire in the AHL this year, having recorded only nine goals and 10 assists through 60 games. New York has nothing to play for in its finale, though, so maybe Fogarty will get the chance to make his NHL debut.
