In the summer of 2015, Jarret Stoll was arrested for possession of cocaine and ecstasy at a hotel in Las Vegas. He pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors in the case in June 2015.
Despite being tied to drug possession, the New York Rangers still felt that the Saskatchewan native would be a good fit at MSG.
Stoll signed a one-year contract with New York in free agency on August 10th, 2015. Making his debut as the Blueshirts fourth line center on opening night against the Blackhawks, Stoll didn’t account for any points in 15:06 of ice time.
The seasoned veteran’s stay with the Rangers was a short one and frankly forgettable. Jarret Stoll only appeared in 29 games for New York, accounting for just 3 points off of a goal and multiple assists.
The New York Rangers waived Stoll, where he was then claimed by the Minnesota Wild. Playing in 51 games with Minnesota, Stoll only accounted for 6 points and was -3 in +/-. The 2015/16 season would mark the last time he would secure an NHL contract, capping off a 13-year playing career.
