CROWDER SIGNS WITH RANGERS
Former Burnaby Express star Paul Crowder has signed a professional contract with the New York Rangers.
Paul spent 2 seasons with the Express from 04-06. He was a member of the 2006 Royal Bank Cup championship team.
He put up 15 goals and 35 assists for 50 points in 41 regular season games with the Express. In the 06 playoffs, Crowder took his game to another level putting up 8 goals and 2o points in just 16 games in spite missing the first round of the playoffs due to a shoulder injury.
Following the 06 season, Crowder accepted a scholarship with the University of Alaska Anchorage. He played 3 seasons with the Sea Wolves scoring 32 goals and 48 assists for 80 points in 107 career games.
"We are very pleased with this great opportunity for Paul," said UAA head coach Dave Shyiak. "He couldn't be more deserving of it. He did a great job representing Alaska Anchorage on the ice and in the classroom, and we wish him the best of success with the Rangers organization."
Crowder will immediately report to the Rangers AHL affiliate in Hartford.
