Today's New York Rangers notes.

Happy Friday, folks. Can you believe we're actually three days away from a preseason game? It's all happening, and on Thursday, we reached another benchmark on the #HockeyIsBack trail. Here are your morning notes.

Training camp officially opened on Thursday, while on-ice activities will begin on Friday. Here is what we learned from head coach Alain Vigneault, though:

  • Your big run-down, with all the story lines and newsworthy items in one place. [Blueshirt Banter] [Ranger Rants] [Newsday] [Daily News]
  • Who will be the next Rangers captain? Check back right before the regular season begins. [NY Post]
  • The job of third line center is open, and Vigneault likes the versatility he has in two youngsters. [NY Post]
Yesterday was Thursday, the day after Wednesday, and the day before Friday. Oh, and, Pavel Buchnevich continued his torrid KHL space in style. [Blueshirt Banter].

The Ryan Johansen situation is getting messy in Columbus, with no resolution in sight for the player or the Blue Jackets. But luckily, in New York, Glen Sather has sent a long precedent of bridge contracts. [Blueshirt Banter]
