Rangers release playoffs training camp roster
— New York Rangers (@NYRangers) July 13, 2020
The roster has 19 forwards, 10 defensemen, and 4 goalies. There are no real surprises here, other than potentially Yegor Rykov being left off due to injury concerns. K’Andre Miller is invited to experience it. His contract doesn’t begin until next season, so he can’t play in games.
The big glaring item on the roster is how thin the Rangers are on defense. They are one injury away from Libor Hajek in the lineup, and two from one of Darren Raddysh or Brandon Crawley. That’s a problem, but we knew that going into camp.
It will be interesting to see how David Quinn runs his Rangers playoffs camp with this roster. Does he go straight into lines/pairings? Or is this going to be like a preseason camp? Things to look out for. But hey, hockey is back for now.
