Arbitration Dates Announced For Rangers RFAs
Moments ago, the NHLPA announced the salary arbitration dates for the four Rangers restricted free agents.

Jimmy Vesey and Brady Skjei will have their hearings on July 30 and 31, respectively, while Kevin Hayes is to meet with the arbiter on August 2 and Ryan Spooner on August 4. As we’ve mentioned before, the two sides can still reach an agreement before these arbitration deadlines. That gives Rangers GM Jeff Gorton around three weeks to sign these four assets to contracts for next season and beyond. Should any of the four get to arbitration, it will mark the first time since 2007 that the Rangers front office and player had a contract meted out by an arbiter.
