There are plenty of reasons Alex Kerfoot might want to join the Rangers

– Though there are mixed opinions of Alex Kerfoot’s pro potential, landing him would still be a coup for the Blueshirts. I’m very uneasy about the pressure on Lias Andersson entering training camp. Heck even David Desharnais is far from a sure thing. Bringing Kerfoot into the mix would be a very nice insurance policy and create a healthy competition.

– It’s almost comical to see the difference in the offseason between the NHL and NBA. While only the most rabid Ranger fans are still refreshing Twitter for Kerfoot updates, the world exploded when the Kyrie Irving blockbuster went down last night out of nowhere. I think there are pros and cons to both situations. On the one hand, I’d love it if my sport were discussed 24/7 across society and the excitement was this high even in August, which is normally such a dead period. But on the other, I don’t necessarily mind a month or two each year to take a break from the action before I get completely sucked in all over again.

Per Larry Brooks, the Rangers are among the final three teams for Hobey Baker finalist Alex Kerfoot. Kerfoot was originally a fifth round draft pick of the Devils in 2012, and opted to go the free agency route over signing across the Hudson. Kerfoot is a center, a position of dire need for the Rangers, and the 23-year-old seems to have the quickness and skill that might make him a viable asset for the club.

The Harvard graduate put up steadily increasing numbers –around 30 points– with the Crimson before exploding for 16 goals and 45 points in his senior year. The assist totals remained somewhat consistent throughout his four years, and it was just his goal total that doubled in his final season.

Kerfoot would be another name in the fold for a potential roster spot, as the 5’10”, 175 lb center would likely be competing with Lias Andersson, David Desharnais, and potentially Boo Nieves and Adam Tambellini for the 3C spot. Either way, his addition would certainly help bolster the center depth, which is sorely needed.
