The Rangers have cut five players from the training camp roster, leaving 49 players left in camp.
- Robin Kovacs and Adam Chapie were assigned to Hartford. Brenden Kotyk was released from his NHL PTO and assigned to Hartford as well.
- Tim Gettinger and Ty Ronning were assigned to their junior teams.
The Gettinger/Ronning moves were expected. It is interesting that Sean Day was not assigned to juniors. The club may be looking at sending him to the AHL instead.
The fact that Kovacs was assigned to Hartford with the first players cut is not promising. Many, including myself, were hoping his rough year last season was due to the bad team and bad usage. However getting cut this early does not bode well.
