Official: Rangers lose Colin Blackwell to Seattle at Expansion Draft

The worst kept secret was Seattle’s expansion draft roster, as the entire thing was leaked earlier today. However there’s always a chance the leaker is wrong. This time, not so much. After the first six teams were accurate, we knew the rest of the list was accurate. Thus, it was announced that the Rangers lost Colin Blackwell to Seattle at the expansion draft.

There’s still the rumor that something else is coming, possibly sending Blackwell (and Mark Giordano) back to the Rangers. Ryan Strome’s name was brought up as well. Nothing has been announced on that front yet.

Obviously, more is to come.
