Guess who's back? Artem Anisimov, the former NHL forward, is making a surprising move. He's signed up with the AHL's Hartford Wolf Pack, linked to the New York Rangers, on a tryout deal. This unexpected decision gives us a peek into Anisimov's journey as he goes back to familiar territory.

Confirmed by Wolf Pack GM Ryan Martin, the 35-year-old Anisimov is rejoining the team pronto, marking his second go-around with them. With a big-league career of 771 NHL games with teams like the Rangers, Blue Jackets, Blackhawks, and Senators, Anisimov's return means they're getting a seasoned player who knows how to score.

A four-time 20+ goal scorer, Anisimov showed off his skills last season in the AHL with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, scoring 19 goals and 36 points in 55 games. This recent success shows he's still got it and can bring experience and scoring to the team.

Picked in the second round of the 2006 NHL Draft by the Rangers, Anisimov's decision to come back to the Wolf Pack is like a homecoming. It's a chance for the veteran forward to make a big impact once again. As we wait for updates, Anisimov's AHL comeback is a cool twist in his amazing hockey journey.
