Over the weekend, Larry Brooks wrote that the Rangers aren’t expected to bring in a large group of players to training camp.
He said that Michael Haley has a chance to make the team and that besides Chris Kreider, Marek Hrivik could get an invite to training camp.
Carp from Rangers Report tweets that the Rangers are only expected to have about 23 players in training camp.
At Howlings, Mitch Beck writes that John Tortorella has taken a bit of an interest in Hrivik.
Beck also thinks that Chad Kolarik has a chance to get a shot if the Rangers are in need of scoring.
On Chris Kreider, Beck says that he hasn’t been dominant and he has been “okay” but hasn’t scored that much.
Matt Gilroy is also expected to be invited to training camp.
The Rangers training camp roster is expected to look something like:
Goalie: Henrik Lundqvist, Martin Biron
Defense: Marc Staal, Dan Girardi, Ryan McDonagh, Michael Del Zotto, Anton Stralman, Stu Bickel, Steve Eminger, Matt Gilroy.
