This list features notable names on defense such as Zac Jones, Nils Lundkvist, Tarmo Reunanen, Matthew Robertson, and Braden Schneider, and there’s also familar names up front that include Morgan Barron, Lauri Pajuniemi, and recent draft picks like Brennan Othmann, Will Cuyle, and Karl Henriksson among others.
In goal will be Tyler Wall, Dylan Garand and Talyn Boyko. Wall played for the Pack last season in Hartford, Garand was a fourth round pick in 2020 who played primarily for the Kamloops Blazers, and Boyko, who played for the Tri-City Americans of the WHL, was selected in this year’s draft 112th overall.
The makeup of this roster includes a bevy of players from different leagues, many of whom won’t suit up for the Rangers this season, but it is always fun to see what names standout and deliver an unexpected performance. The makeup of the Rangers’ main roster is not finalized yet, and there’s opportunity for a player to have a strong development camp, join the team’s main camp in an attempt to make the opening night roster.
Camp will run for 10 days until September 20, and will feature two games vs. the Philadelphia Flyers’ prospect group. The first one will take place on September 18 at the MSG Training Center in Tarrytown, and the second will take place on September 19 at the Flyers’ training facility in Voorhees, NJ.
Of this list of players, who are you most excited to see? Is there a dark horse player you think could turn heads?
