Initial lines for Traverse City

September 6, 2018, by

Per Matt Calamia, these were the first lines at practice for the Rangers at Traverse City:

Gabriel Fontaine-Filip Chytil-Ville Meskanen
Michael Lindqvist-Lias Andersson-Jakob Stuckel (invite)
Tim Gettinger-Brett  Howden-Tyler Ronning

Libor Hajek-Brandon Crawley
Ryan Lindgren-Joey Keane
Sean Day-Nicholas Gross

That third line has me a little giddy. I’m intrigued by Lindgren-Keane as well, since it has the feel of a prototypical stay-at-home/offensive defenseman to it.

    Sean Day 3rd pair…

  2. Peter says:

    Stukel if I remember correctly was selected by the Canucks a couple of years ago in the 6th or 7th round. Was notably fast but I am not sure about any other skills. They apparently decided he wasn’t in their plans.

  3. Peter says:

    Have got to say that the optics of Ronning and Gettinger on the same line are great. Gettinger must be a foot taller than Ronning!

  4. Township Rebellion says:

    Crawley can use a good tournament and camp

    I’m rooting for entire left side of the d

    Let’s hope these guys rock!

  7. Andy says:

    that third line makes me giddy too…thinking 2 years from now they could be our full time 3rd line.
