New York Rangers lineup features Vincent Trocheck
This will be Trocheck’s first game wearing a New York Rangers sweater after singing a 7-year contract on July 13 with an AAV $5.625 million.
“I’m excited [to get started],” Trocheck said before camp opened. “Every year there’s this kind of limbo where we sit around waiting for the season to start. I think everybody is pretty eager to get going.”
Trocheck, 29, registered 21 goals and 51 points with the Carolina Hurricanes last season. He is a two-way center that plays with an edge. Another key aspect to his game is an ability to win faceoffs. For his career, Trocheck is 52.1% on draws.

Forwards: Vincent Trocheck, Alexis Lafreniere, Will Cuylle, Jonny Brodzinski, Dryden Hunt, Julien Gauthier, Gustav Rydahl, Ryan Carpenter, Jimmy Vesey, Bobby Trivigno, Vitali Kravtsov, Turner Elson
