We’re a little late today but here are today’s links none the less. News is a little slow while the Rangers take a few days away from playing.

Team USA announced the roster for the Men’s hockey team yesterday and Derek Stepan was the dark horse that made the team. Additionally, Ryan Callahan and Ryan McDonagh were also named to the team.

As other countries are announced we will bring you coverage of the other Rangers who will travel to Socchi.
