With the home opener on tap for Friday, here’s a quick look around the Rangers’ media landscape.
According to Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record, Donald Fehr, the all-but-finalized next NHLPA executive director, met with the Rangers Thursday. In terms of on-ice developments, Mike Sauer will sit and Matt Gilroy will dress for the home opener.
Tim Kennedy was assigned to Hartford, where he’ll be able to get regular playing time and continue his development according to Gross. Only problem is, if the Rangers recall him, he’ll have to pass through re-entry waivers, where teams will be able to claim him at half price. In the end, he could be developing for some other franchise.
