Hello again New York Rangers fans. We have another little lull in the action once again. The Rangers are set to take the ice tomorrow against the Columbus Blue Jackets but lets see what’s going on today!
The team is in Columbus today practicing before tomorrow’s game; all except Benoit Pouliot. The team twitter account cited personal reasons for his absence.

Rangers’ prospect Anthony Duclair has been the center of much attention recently. The finalists for the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League Awards were announced on Tuesday. The Michel-Briere Trophy is the MVP award and Duclair’s name is in the running. This season Duclair posted 99 points in 59 games; 50 of which were goals. The Rangers seem to have some good talent coming up in the ranks.
If you are a parent and your child loves hockey, the Rangers’ hockey camp signups have already begun. You could be the coolest mom or dad EVER! Spaces are limited and filling up fast. Don’t miss your opportunity to excite your kids and give them a once in a lifetime opportunity to do something great.
Last night the Hartford Wolf Pack faced off against the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. A close game was blown open in the third period. You can read all about how Danny Kristo, Dylan McIlrath, and Oscar Lindberg each chipped in with goals to secure the 4-1 win for the Pack here. It looks like the Rangers are stacking the pool and getting ready to really break out strong in the near future.
This should get you through the day and keep you satisfied until tomorrow, we are preparing more reading materials for you today. Stay tuned to see what will happen next! Let’s Go Rangers!!
