Adam Clendening

Two PTOs Added

Last week Chris Drury said he didn’t anticipate signing any Player Tryouts (PTOs) to bring players into camp, perhaps he meant just in terms of veterans – e.g. Jimmy Vesey last season. When the camp roster this week there were a handful of undrafted players who attended prosect camp that were invited, and over the last 24 hours, there’s been two more free agents added.

Defenseman Adam Clendening – who played for New York back in the 2016-17 season, and then joined Hartford for their run through the playoffs last year – was a late add to the blueline. The 30 year old last played in the NHL in 2018-19, and has 90 NHL games to his name over an 11 year career. If the Rangers do elect to extend an NHL contract, or for that matter an AHL contract, it does provide a degree of coverage on the right side, perhaps the slightly weaker of the two sides.

In perhaps a more surprising move, they also extended a PTO to goaltender Brad Arvanitis, 26 year old who has 9 ECHL games to his name over the past two seasons, and 20 games down in the SPHL. It would seem unlikely that Arvanitis will win a contract, but perhaps it’s with an eye to providing Cincinnati with some more options.
