Rangers Sign Gilroy

Matt Gilroy is heading back to his roots.

After a full year of speculation as to where the 24-year-old North Bellmore, N.Y. native would sign, Gilroy agreed to a reported 2-year, $3.5 million contract Friday with the New York Rangers. This comes one week after being named college hockey's best player, winning the Hobey Baker Memorial Award, and leading his team, Boston University, to a stunning comeback win in the NCAA Championship.

Gilroy started his collegiate playing career as a walk-on, switching from his natural position of forward to defense so that he could make the squad.
