Yesterday, Artemi Panarin led another small group for on ice workouts at the MSG Training Center. The Rangers charismatic leading scorer pumped his fist as he stepped on the frozen landscape in Tarrytown, NY. It’s a sight Rangers fans have waited months to see.
Also on the ice with the Breadman were Adam Fox, Marc Staal, Phil Di Giuseppe and Brendan Smith. These informal workouts will conclude prior to Phase 3 on July 10th. We can also expect players overseas to start making their way here late June and early July.
Also, Vegas will be announced as the Eastern Conference hub soon. The NHL is still working out details and easing quarantine restrictions to select a Canadian city for the Western hub which will most likely be Toronto.
