In some actual hockey news, the Rangers have placed defenseman Sean Day on unconditional waivers for the purpose of terminating his contract. Day, the Rangers’ third round pick in 2016, was one of only a select few that was granted “exceptional” status in the CHL and allowed to play at a younger age.
Day never met his ceiling as an exceptional status player, failing to secure a spot in the AHL with the Hartford Wolf Pack over the past two seasons. He’s been passed by far too many on the depth chart as well.
Hopefully he’s able to pick it up elsewhere.
