The Rangers kicked off their 2017 Training Camp with Media Day, where the players and coaches meet with the media masses to discuss the upcoming season.
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.
Rangers winger Mats Zuccarello has had quite the year both on and off the ice. He led the team with 59 points in the regular season and had seven points in the playoffs. He was consistent in his effort every night, regardless of whether or not he was tickling the twine. And this effort won him the team’s coveted Steven McDonald Extra Effort Award.
Mats Zuccarello, the New York Rangers leader in points for the second consecutive season, will be pivotal to the Rangers success this season. Redundant I’ll admit, however, the fan favorite is such a huge contributor that the team will need him to step up even more.
New York Rangers prospect Nicklas Jensen, who is currently a restricted free agent, has signed a 1-year contract with Jokerit of the KHL. Since Nicklas came to the organization in a trade with Vancouver for Emerson Etem, he has been assigned to the team’s minor league affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack. Despite being a call up on a couple of occasions, he couldn’t keep himself with the big club long enough to call it home.
On July 4th, the Rangers agreed to a 1 year, $1 million contract with 30-year-old center David Desharnais. He is a depth center, which the Rangers needed after losing Derek Stepan, and Oscar Lindberg.

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.
