Manny Malhotra
The Checkers have made a significant addition at center, signing NHL veteran Manny Malhotra to a 25-game professional tryout contract.

A two-way forward and faceoff specialist, Malhotra, 33, has played 864 NHL games, most recently with the Vancouver Canucks. During that time, he posted 278 points (108g, 170a) and 421 penalty minutes. The New York Rangers’ first-round pick (seventh overall) in 1998, he has also played for Dallas, Columbus and San Jose.

After suffering a significant eye injury during the 2010-11 season, Malhotra played the first part of the most recent NHL season before going on injured reserve in February.
