Greetings,All Rangers fans!
As we’ve mentioned, we’ve made some key moves to the roster.
We’re pleased to announce that Chris Kreides new contract is effective immediately, and that Dan Boyle is returning to the NHL.
We also added forward Mike Hoffman to the Rangers roster.
We’re also pleased to report that our top six prospects will be signed to contracts as they become available, and the Rangers will add two forwards and two defensemen in the upcoming weeks.
Our next priority is to add a veteran defenseman to the club.
Our goal is to have our players compete at the NHL level and have them be successful.
We will continue to look for quality, veteran defensemen that can compete and be a part of our team.
As we look to the future, we will continue making smart moves that will benefit the organization moving forward.

We will have more to say on the roster moves coming soon.
