Segal signs with Rangers, Barch joins Devils

The Rangers added more depth to the organization yesterday, signing Brandon Segal. Ironically, he turned 29 today and joins his fifth team if you count that he was drafted by Nashville.

Segal never played for the Predators but had brief stints with the Kings, Stars and Lightning. In '11-12, he got into 10 games for Tampa Bay putting up zero points and four penalty minutes. In other words, he's ticketed for Connecticut. For his NHL career, Segal has 11 goals and 11 assists over 102 games.

Devils add Barch: Last week, the Devils added some toughness by signing veteran Krys Barch. The 32-year old has played in six seasons for the Stars and most recently the Panthers. In his first four years with Dallas, he had four consecutive 100-plus penalty minutes. However, his role decreased and he was dealt to Florida where he put up two goals and three assists along with 91 PIM over 41 games.

Unfortunately, his only year in Sunrise is best known for an alleged racial slur during an incident with the Habs' P.K. Subban. He was ejected and suspended one game. He joins his third team with the Devils inking him to a two-year contract. An upgrade over departed Eric Boulton and possible AHLer Cam Janssen
