The Rangers have placed defenseman Peter Zamorsky on unconditional waivers to terminate his contract. Zamorsky was signed as an undrafted free agent out of the Czech league in June of 2014. Zamorsky never made the cut for the Rangers, and was getting passed on the depth chart by guys like Brady Skjei and Ryan Graves. Zamorsky will return to the Czech Republic, and he will be removed from the reserve list.

The Rangers also placed goalie Cedrick Desjardins on regular waivers, and he will be sent to the AHL. Desjardins was injured, so he couldn’t be waived prior to today.

Richard Nejezchleb was sent down to the ECHL as well.

Brad Morrison is looking like a nice value pick in the 4th round

Seven days folks. Just seven more days until the first preseason game against the New Jersey Devils. Until then, some of the New York Rangers prospects and invites have been participating in a week long tournament in Traverse City against seven other NHL teams. While it has been pretty much impossible to watch, there are some people at the games that have been able to keep fans updated on how players are doing

Brad Morrison

All aboard the Brad Morrison hype train. I have been praising this kid since about March, then I wrote about him here a few weeks before the draft, and then finally I was elated that the Rangers actually chose the guy I wanted. With the barren offensive prospects the Rangers have at their disposal this year in Traverse City, Brad Morrison was asked to be part of the go to guys on offense and hasn’t disappointed. In the first game he was constantly getting chances, but just shooting high. That all changed when he provided the first goal of the tournament by using his shifty skating to cut right into the slot and go top shelf on the Minnesota Wild goalie.

Calle Andersson is finally coming to North America to further his hockey career

After a couple of weeks of speculation and research the New York Rangers finally unveiled their Traverse City roster. Personally I am pretty happy that I was able to find some of the tryout guys early and provide you all with some information on them. There are still some names out there that are currently New York Rangers property that have not been talked about as much, since they are the dark horses of the organization.

Calle Andersson – The older brother of Calgary Flames draft pick Rasmus Andersson has had an interesting early start to his career. Calle was a 4th round pick by the Rangers in 2012, and the 6’2 right handed two-way defenseman is finally coming to North America this season. He bounced around in Sweden a lot early in his career, and his play suffered. Last year he started the season with EV Zug of the Swiss League, and looked like his career was going downhill fast. He wasn’t playing well and he wasn’t putting points up. His NHL hopes were looking bleak. That all changed when he was traded to HC Lugano, the team that Calle’s father (and former Ranger 4th round pick) Peter Andersson is an assistant coach for. Calle’s season immediately turned around as he went on to score 17 points in 30 games in what truly was a tale of two seasons.

Bourque

Over the past two seasons, I’ve gone through the Rangers organization and ranked the top 25 players under the age of 25 years old (2013, 2014). The ground rules for this list are simple: To qualify for this list, a player must be under 25 years old. It doesn’t matter if this player is in the NHL, AHL, or in any of the leagues around the world. If they are Ranger property and under 25, they were considered.

First, let’s go through the players from last year’s list that no longer qualify and honorable mentions who missed the cut:

Aged out: Derek Stepan, Mat Bodie
No longer with the organization: Anthony Duclair, John Moore, Conor Allen, Ryan Haggerty
Honorable mentions: Adam Huska, Sergey Zborovskiy, Tyler Nanne, Ryan Mantha, Keegan Iverson, Marek Hrivik

Now let’s go through the top-25 players under the age of 25, starting with #25. I will group some of these players together, as some are so close in skill set that it was tough to rank one higher than the other.

Rangers sign defenseman Petr Zamorsky

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Rangers sign defenseman Petr Zamorsky

Per Darren Dreger, the Rangers have signed defenseman Petr Zamorsky out of the Czech Extraliga. The undrafted UFA put together a line of 7-11-18 with 80 PIMs in 44 games this season, and 16-20-36 with 144 PIMs over 118 games in three seasons. Per Corey Pronman, The 5’11, 180 lb defenseman, a right-handed shot, is a good skater who plays solid defense. Pronman says he could be a decent NHLer.
