The New York Rangers Will Take A Look At UFA Ryan Malone

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

Ryan Malone, 34 years old and in need of a second chance, apparently will get one from big-hearted general manager Glen Sather and the Rangers.

The Post has learned Malone, a free agent who was bought out by the Lightning after a June arrest for DUI and possession of cocaine following a fallow 2013-14 season, will join the Blueshirts’ informal skates at the club’s practice facility on Monday in advance of formal contract talks between the team and agent Mike Liut....

A well-placed source told The Post that Malone — who has been placed in Stage Two of the NHL/NHLPA’s Substance Abuse/Behavioral Health Program — has been cleared by the league to sign a contract. The Post also has been told Malone is not likely to face league discipline in the form of a fine or suspension, though he may have to meet with commissioner Gary Bettman and/or deputy Bill Daly to receive an official go-ahead.
