While the Blueshirts’ prospects aren’t attending the Traverse City tournament this year, they’ll still get the opportunity to don the blue shirt this afternoon. The Rangers’ prospects will be squaring off with a group of prospects from the Philadelphia Flyers organization. The headline of New York’s group will be Nils Lundkvist, a 2018 first round selection that will be making his North American debut this season.
A handful of Rangers that made their NHL debuts last season will be appearing today as well. Morgan Barron, Tarmo Reunanen, and Justin Richards may have all already made their mark with the Rangers, but they’ll be skating alongside players such as 2019 second round selection Matthew Robertson and 2021 first round selection Brennan Othmann this afternoon.
