The Rangers Reassign/Release 22 Players

Last evening, the Rangers reassigned 20 players and released two from training camp. Both Dallas Valentine and Nathan Burns.

Valentine was […]

Rangers Lose First Pre-Season Game 5-4, But Several Prospects Impress

Last night, the Rangers opened their pre-season with a 5-4 loss to the New Jersey Devils at Madison Square Garden.

The Wolf Pack’s Opening Weekend

The Hartford Wolf Pack, the Rangers’ AHL affiliate, played their first two games this weekend, garnering 3 out of the 4 available points from the contests.

Pre-Season is Over; Where are the Rangers Now?

The Rangers have made no secret of the fact that they want this to be a Stanley Cup year–that the Rangers are serious contenders for the Stanley Cup.
