Next up in Scouting The Market: Jordan Leopold. Read the other Scouting The Markets here.
Jordan Leopold is a 29 year old defenseman, who played last year with the Panthers and Penguins. An offensive defenseman, he put up a line of 11-15-26 last season.
He’s a good puck mover, and won’t embarrass you in his own end. He’s not a crease clearer by any stretch of the imagination.
Leopold, unfortunately, might be remembered more for this than anything else:
Leopold made $1.75 million last year, and he should expect to get a similar amount in his next deal. A one year deal worth $1.75 million is not bad at all.
What do you think of Leopold? A good fit for the Rangers? Let us know in the comments.
