Last week, we took a dive into a few players the New York Rangers should consider signing to a professional tryout contract. Since then, Ryan Donato has found his new home with the Seattle Kraken. Tyler Bozak is also expected to sign a new contract in the next few days with an unspecified team, according to Elliotte Friedman. Sami Vatanen is still available, but it feels right to shine a light on a few more players now.

The players who discussed in this piece each play different positions. Therefore, they would all be competing for different spots in the lineup. Although none of them would be expected to be stars for the Rangers, they could provide them with more depth if they end up earning themselves a contract. The Rangers also have enough money to sign any of them to a league-minimum deal with ease.

Like stated in the previous piece, there is no actual harm in signing players to PTOs. The Rangers would not have to commit to any of these players and would be able to cut them if needed. They also would allow the team to get an exclusive look at players who could end up benefitting the club.

Before beginning, it’s important to note that they are not in any particular order. Now, let’s get started.
