Read: Mike Rupp Is One Of The Boys

Mike Rupp told Larry Brooks in the NY Post that he was happy he was given the chance to travel with the team during the team he was injured.

He told Brooks that during that time he fostered friendships and relationships with the rest of the players and that he was happy to have that opportunity while injured.

As this story shows, Rupp is an awesome guy and having him around as a veteran presence, even if he wasn’t playing, was a great idea. He was a popular player in the Penguins room and seems to have a nice personality that has fit in with the Rangers.
