“New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has signed forward Blair Betts to a contract extension.”
Good move by Glen Sather. Blair Betts has been a solid third line center for the Rangers all season. It is nice to see that the team has recognized his contribution to the team without looking at the score sheet. Betts, who has only registered 5 goals and an assist this season, is a role player for this team and gets the job done on a consistent basis. He is an excellent penalty killer with 50 blocked shots which ranks first by fowards in the NHL . He is also a strong face off man leading the team in face-offs won.
Once again the only things lacking in Betts’s game is his scoring prowess, and playmaking ability. If he can begin to tally a few more goals we will have one of the stronger third line centers in the league for at least two more seasons. _X_
