Devils Claim Geertsen

Forward Mason Geertsen has been claimed off of waivers by the New Jersey Devils, less than two days after making his preseason debut against the very same Devils.  Geertsen, a former 4th round pick of the Colorado Avalanche in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, has yet to play an NHL game, but looks a good chance to […]

Othmann Sent Down – 6 Placed On Waivers

As the last 2021 draft pick to be reassigned, Brennan Othmann felt he achieved one of his goals.  Observers have said he didn’t look out of place alongside his much more experienced teammates, which bodes well for his future.  With just one appearance, Othmann’s chance to impress has largely been in the confines of the Rangers’ practice […]

Justin Richards Reassigned

Forward Justin Richards has been reassigned to Hartford following his appearance in last night’s 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins.  Richards made in his NHL debut last season, appearing in the final regular season game and picking up an assist.

Prospect Camp Wraps Up

With today’s final practice cancelled, the Rangers 2021 Prospect Camp has officially wrapped up.  The camp featured 27 players who came together on September 10th and finished it off with a home and home series with the Flyers prospects. The results aside (a 6-3 defeat on Saturday and a 3-2 win in the return match […]

Camp Set To Start Around September 22nd

Perhaps the only advantage of the ongoing COVID situation is that this season’s Summer is about a month shorter than normal.  Normally you’d expect a team that missed the playoffs to be off the ice in early April, and then a substantial gap between the July1st free agency period and the restart of festivities in […]
