Following today’s cuts, the Rangers have announced the roster for tomorrow’s preseason kickoff against the Devils (per Katie Strang).
Forwards: Arron Asham, Brian Boyle, Ryan Bourque, Marek Hrivik, Chris Kreider, Danny Kristo, Brandon Mashinter, Dominic Moore, Rick Nash, Shawn O’Donnell, Darroll Powe, Brad Richards
Defense: Marc Staal, John Moore, Justin Falk, Aaron Johnson, Michael Del Zotto, Stu Bickel (if Bickel isn’t healthy, then Dylan McIlrath will play)
Goalie: Henrik Lundqvist, Cam Talbot
My guess is that Kreider, Nash, and Richards will skate on a line together, since they skated together during today’s scrimmage. Same goes for Staal and Del Zotto. The other players are likely playing to earn more training camp time. Keep an eye on Bourque, Hrivik, and McIlrath (if he plays).
