Training camp is a month away for the hockey world, and each team is ready to drop the puck and focus on the upcoming season. Most teams have finalized their rosters, however, there are still unsigned players. Hartford can still add one or two more players, quality veterans, preferably. Here are a few players that I would recommend the club to pursue. And as long as they sign AHL contracts, they won’t affect the Rangers cap situation.

On Tuesday morning, the New York Rangers announced that Joe Mormina will be the new assistant head coach for the Wolf Pack. He joins fellow assistant coach Pat Boller and head coach Keith McCambridge behind the Hartford bench. Prior to the hire, Mormina was the assistant coach at Mercyhurst University for the 2016-17 season, after ending his playing career with the Rochester Americans in the 2015-16 season.
On Friday afternoon, the Wolf Pack added another veteran to their roster. General Manager Chris Drury signed Eric Selleck to an American Hockey League contract. The signing does not impact the cap space for the New York Rangers.
Last night wrapped up the fifth annual Hartford Wolf Pack town hall meeting. The Wolf Pack’s management group, Spectra, began to do these to interact with the season ticket holders when they took over the team and the XL Center. They provide updates on and off the ice such as potential players coming in, theme nights, promotions, and renovations. Here’s a recap of this year’s meeting.

My name is Ricky and I look forward to providing phenomenal coverage for the New York Rangers’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack. I have been a season ticket holder for the club since 2010. Prior to that, I attended games throughout my childhood. I have seen Ryan Callahan, Mats Zuccarello, Dan Girardi, Pierre-Alexandre Parenteau, Artem Anisimov, and many others develop in Hartford. The list is lengthy on who has made it to the big leagues. I have seen some of the worst and best moments in franchise history, such as the Pack reaching the Eastern Conference Finals in the 2014-15 season to the worst, a defeat of 10-2 against the Springfield Falcons (now Tuscon Road Runners). I am currently a college student at the University of Connecticut and attend Hockey East matches to watch the Huskies.
