As first reported yesterday by RDS and confirmed by the team today, the Hartford Wolf Pack have signed 33-year old Mathieu Dandenault to a 25-game professional tryout (PTO) agreement.

A 15-year pro with three Stanley Cups to his credit, Dandenault spent the past four seasons with the Montreal Canadiens, where he played both right wing and defense. In 868 career NHL games with Detroit and Montreal, the Sherbrooke, Quebec native has scored 68 goals and 135 assists for 203 points, along with 516 penalty minutes.

According to the RDS report, Dandenault will play defense for the Wolf Pack.  Make no mistake: even though the Hartford defense corps has played well below its collective talent level, Dandenault’s not heading to Hartford to help out on the AHL club’s blueline.  He’s in town to prove he’s worthy of the seventh defense spot on the parent New York Rangers.

    At least with Rissmiller in Grand Rapids they won’t have to worry about the “vet” limit on the ice.
