Here are the latest rumblings around Rangerstown.

Rangers Leadership Group

The Blueshirts announced their leadership group for the upcoming season, as the team has selected to go with five alternate captains instead of having a captain and a handful of alternates.

Of this group, Mika Zibanejad is the only player to have not worn the alternate’s “A” during the regular season. But with the team undergoing their rebuild, having a solid foundation of veterans will go a long way in helping the younger players.

Practice Report

The Rangers held their final practice of training camp and it looks like fans will be happy to know that Cody McLeod appears to be the 13th forward for David Quinn’s squad. In addition, free-agent signing Fredrik Claesson and Tony DeAngelo skated as the extra defensemen.
