The Baby Rangers dropped to 0-3 in this year’s Traverse City Tournament, losing to the Columbus Blue Jackets by a score of 4-2. Goals were scored by Oscar Lindberg (5th of the tournament) and Josh Nicholls. Assists came from Danny Kristo and Connor Allen. Lindberg (5 G) and Kristo (1 , 4 A) are tied for 5th in the tournament in scoring. With the loss, it appears the Rangers are eliminated from competition, but I may have read the schedule incorrectly. The consolation and championship games are scheduled for tomorrow, but with their 0-2-1 record, it seems likely that the Rangers will not be participating.

Barring an unexpected seismic shift in contract talks that have gone nowhere all summer between the Rangers and Derek Stepan the unsigned 24-year-old restricted free agent center will not report tomorrow for his physical on the first day of training camp.
