A little background:
Ambühl began playing junior hockey in the HC Davos organization, with the club's junior team. In 2000–01, he scored 41 points in 31 games as a junior and debuted in 3 games with HC Davos in the Nationalliga A. He joined the senior team in 2001–02, scoring 8 points in 38 games during his rookie season. Playing with HC Davos in the 2006 Spengler Cup as tournament hosts, Ambühl scored the championship-winning goal against Team Canada in a 3–2 final win. In 2007–08, Ambühl scored a career-high 26 points in 49 games for HC Davos. Ambühl, rugged for a 5-10, 198-pounder, has played 43 times for Switzerland in Olympic and World Championship competition.
I don't know much about the guy, but it is gratifying to know that management is out in the field doing their job.
(UPDATE - Old news that we haven't yet covered)
Obviously our 2008 first round pick (20th overall), Michael Del Zotto, has officially been signed and will compete for a starting position with the Rangers this summer. Go here or here for more information. So much for the sharpshooters desperately needed on this Blueshirt squad.
Tom Renney - former coach of the NY Defensemen (Rangers) has taken an assistant coach job with the Edmonton Oilers, second to Patrick Quinn. Sound familiar? If these two don't kill each other by mid-season....watch for the fireworks up north and beware of dual rabid/rapid gum chewing.
