The Hartford Wolf Pack, the New York Rangers’ AHL affiliate, are going through a myriad of organizational turnover this offseason. With 10 free agents on their team, who will be brought back?
The Hartford Wolf Pack hired former New York Rangers’ captain Chris Drury as their general manager a few weeks ago. He will have had about a month and a half to prepare for his first offseason in his role, where he is in charge of a complete revamp of the Wolf Pack, a team who finished in last place in 16-17.
With that comes a lot of tough decisions. Drury has to sift through 10 different free agents track records, some UFA and some RFA, and decide who will be back for 17-18 and beyond. Hartford certainly can’t get any worse, but Drury, who also must hire a minor league coach now, is facing a lot of pressure to get this thing right.
