Jarkko Immonen (not to be confused with the Dallas Stars draft pick of the same name) was originally a Toronto Maple Leafs 8th round draft pick in 2002 (254th overall). He was acquired in March 2004 as part of an exchange for defenseman Brian Leetch.
2005-06: After 4 seasons in the Finnish Elite League, Immonen came to play North American hockey for the 2005-06 season. The face-off specialist had an excellent season with the AHL Hartford Wolf Pack, registering 70 points in 74 games.
2006-07: Immonen was touted to be the frontrunner for a center position on the 2006-07 NHL team, however, he spent almost the entire season in Hartford with the AHL team. He played in 14 regular season games with the Rangers and scored 6 points, but he was not given much of an opportunity to show his skills at the highest level.
