Saginaw Spirit graduate Chris Chappell signed with the NHL New York Rangers this week. The 21 year old signed a three year, two way contract that could see him play for the Rangers or their AHL affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack. Chappell spent four seasons with the Spirit, aging out of the Ontario Hockey League following the 2008-2009 season.

The Spirit spoke to an excited Chris Chappell earlier in the week. "I had some idea that the Rangers were looking at me during the season but they waited until after the NHL draft before approaching me," stated Chappell, "This has been very exciting and I look forward to attending the Traverse City (MI) training camp in the fall."

Chappell served as the Spirit's captain last season, leading the team in scoring with 38 goals and 38 assists in 68 regular season games. The Pickering, Ontario native led the Spirit to their first second round playoff appearance in team history. He tallied 2 goals and 6 assists in 8 playoff games. Chappell also represented Saginaw at the 2009 OHL All-Star Classic.
