Read: Stu Bickel Is Hoping For Another Chance

Last season, Stu Bickel played 16 games with the Rangers before being sent to Hartford and playing ten games.

Bickel is in NY and skating as he tries to make the Rangers as a depth defenseman this season.

He told the Rangers website, “I’m really looking forward to it. It’s a clean slate. I’m not looking to make excuses for last season. I’m in really good shape right now and I am happy for the opportunity.”

“It was a difficult year for a lot of reasons but I am not putting any thought into what happened last year. “

He is a UFA after the season with a cap hit of $750,000 and has also played forward in his career.
