Taken from the New York Rangers' press release, 10/25/05:

The New York Rangers announced today that the club has signed forward Fedor Fedorov to a NHL contract and has recalled him from the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League.

Fedorov, 24, has skated in five games with the Wolf Pack this season, registering one goal and four assists. He is tied for the Wolf Pack team lead in assists (four) and points (five). Fedorov joined the Rangers this morning and participated in the club's on-ice practice.

Fedorov was a restricted free agent in Vancouver, and was traded to the Rangers when the Canucks wouldn't meet his demands for a one-way contract. Fedorov was playing in Hartford on a professional try-out contract, which the Wolf Pack had released him from earlier today.

Dale Purinton continues to yo-yo back and forth, as the Rangers have sent him back to Hartford again only days after bringing him to New York.
