Christian Thomas Traded for Danny Kristo

New York made their third minor trade today, exchanging undersized forwards with the Montreal Canadiens.  Heading north is Christian Thomas, who appeared in just one NHL game for the Rangers, interestingly enough, against the very team he’s joining.  Meanwhile Danny Kristo, who completed his eligibility at North Dakota last season, will join the Rangers. It’s an interesting […]

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue

In past years, a lot has been made of bringing in veterans who have Stanley Cup experience.  Chris Drury, Scott Gomez, even lesser lights like Ruslan Fedotenko were referred to as having been there and having the ring to prove it. Brad Richards is the lone representative in terms of Cup winning pedigree…if you exclude John Tortorella of course. […]

More Line Changes?

The Rangers had a day off yesterday, but were back at practice today albeit with a few exceptions.  Sean Avery was officially assigned to the Connecticut Whale early this week, and reported for duty yesterday – Bergen Record.  Although, not exactly.  Avery has a shoulder injury – New York Post – and while the MRI was negative, he’ll get […]

Life In The Fasth Lane

by Jamy Baron The NHL draft is quite the thing. Based on where you are drafted, the hype either begins very quickly or does not begin at all. In┬áJesper Fasth’s case, there was absolutely no hype and he was seen as just another tweener. For those of you who look at a late round draft […]

Line-up Announced For Preseason Opener

John Tortorella announced the roster for tomorrow night’s preseason opener against the Devils, and as promised it’s a team with several young players, and few veterans. Surprisingly perhaps, Henrik Lundqvist will get his first action of the season backstopping a roster that features just eight players who played for the Rangers last year. Backing up Lundqvist in […]

Day 1 Summary

Day one of Rangers Training Camp started with 63 players on deck, but notably excluded from the list was veteran Wade Redden and prospects Randy McNaught and Chris Chappell.  Redden will report directly to the Whale when they open up camp, while McNaught will return to the WHL.  Chappell was not invited to camp last year either, and would seemingly […]

Hockey is upon us!

by Jamy Baron As summer comes to an end, so too does the long wait for Rangers hockey to start up again. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been waiting since the day the Rangers lost to Washington, very impatiently to say the least. After an exciting off-season that included signings such as Brad Richards and Mike […]

Who to watch in Traverse City

The Traverse City Prospect Tournament kicks off Saturday with the Rangers scheduled to face the St Louis Blues in the first of three group matches – 7:00pm MSG/NHL.  All four Ranger games are set to be televised for the first time, and it will give many fans their first chance to look at some of […]

Traverse City Roster Released

We’re in the dog days of summer, but hockey is on the horizon with the release of the Traverse City Tournament roster for the Rangers. The Blueshirts will once again participate in the prospect competition that will begin September 10th in Michigan. One player in particular will go into the tournament with hopes of making […]

Off-season Notes

It never is fun to lose, and it always takes me a while to get back into the groove of things after the Rangers season ends. So apologies certainly for having just the minimal updates so far. First up, we’ve updated the OTG Draft page with details for the June 24-25 NHL Entry Draft to be hosted […]
