Brennan Othmann has been cut by the Rangers as they trimmed the roster by 8 this afternoon. Othmann was expected to be cut and reassigned to the OHL this season, even if he may have been a better option at 3LW than some others.

Turner Elson, Karl Henriksson, Patrick Khodorenko, Olof Lindbom, Brandon Scanlin, and CJ Smith (who cleared waivers today) have been assigned to the Hartford Wolf Pack. Adam Edstrom will return to Sweden, as expected.
Many, including myself, wanted to see Othmann for a little longer, but the writing was clearly on the wall from his practice and preseason game linemates.
