Scanlin Signs Days Ahead of Arbitration Hearing

The Rangers announced today that they have come to terms with 24 year old defenseman Brandon Scanlin on a one year $775K deal.  The agreement comes three days ahead of Friday’s scheduled arbitration hearing that was set after Scanlin became the only eligible Ranger to file for arbitration.

Rangers Sign Towering Defenseman

According to Capgeek the Rangers have signed undrafted defenseman Troy Donnay to a three year entry level contract.  The 6-8, 185lb Donnay played for the Erie Otters of the OHL last season, and recorded 1 goal, 7 assists and 48 penalty minutes in 68 games. Donnay is heading into his fourth season in the OHL, but at age 19 […]

Rangers Add Hollowell For More Defensive Depth

Last season, defensive depth became a concern after Jarred Tinordi was claimed on waivers and Nils Lundkvist forced a trade, catching Chris Drury short as he entered the year. This time round he’s created a little more cushion, by adding four free agent blueliners, including today’s 11th UFA signing in Mac Hollowell.

Gustafsson Rejoins Laviolette

In their 10th move of a busy first day of free agency, the Rangers added 31 year old defenseman Erik Gustafsson to the roster.  Gustafsson split last season between the Capitals and Toronto, earning a first round pick in return for Washington at the deadline.

Into The Depths

Chris Drury continued his busy day, inking another four players to near minimum values, in order to continue to build up the depth of the organization.  The free agent frenzy has now reached eight players, with the addition of two more forwards and two defenseman, and given the size of the contracts, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that he could still add more once the initial flurry finishes.

Quick, Wheeler Signed…Quickly

Less than 30 minutes into free agency, and Chris Drury and the Rangers have also gone some ways to addressing a couple of needs for the team. With his first two moves resulting in the addition of a top six right wing and a backup netminder.

Rounding Out The Roster

After a busy first day of free agency yesterday, that saw Chris Drury sign a second line center, two NHL experienced netminders and a trade that freed up some Cap room by moving Patrik Nemeth‘s remainig two years at $2.5M to Arizona, he turned his attention to adding a little more depth, by adding a forward and a […]

Second Line Center: Trocheck

For much of 2022, there’s been questions over who would be lineup alongside Artemi Panarin and behind Mika Zibanejad in the second line center spot.  With last year’s choice Ryan Strome heading to free agency, and second option Andrew Copp preferring to head to his home state of Michigan, the focus turned to first the trade market and finally ended up with a […]

Has Trouba Topped Out

When the Rangers acquired Jacob Trouba over the summer, the thought was that he would become the top pair defenseman the Rangers had been searching for since trading Ryan McDonagh.  He brought a bit of offense, an edge to defense and could play against the top lines of the other teams. At 25 years old, that’s a pretty […]

Cap Tips Following Buchnevich Signing

Monday July 29th was the scheduled date for Pavel Buchnevich and the Rangers to meet in front of an arbiter and make their respective cases for the value of a 2019-20 contract.  As it turns out, the arbiter will no longer be needed, as the parties agreed late yesterday to a two year, $6.5M contract.  The signing […]
