Chris Kreider. Derek Stepan. Carl Hagelin. Ryan McDonagh. Those names and more were and are integral parts to the Rangers recent successes.

The dog days of summer are almost over (finally!) and training camp is just around the corner. While the current Rangers are finishing up their offseason, there is still plenty of action in the Blueshirts organization. Here is the latest in this edition of Rangers Roundup.
