There will be a pair of scrimmages between Team Blue and White today, beginning this morning.
We're about an hour away from puck drop and netminders Luke Opilka and Johan Capriotti are having a private workout with goalie coach Kain Tisi before the action begins.
Speaking of new faces, I caught up with forward Jake Henderson (in photo) yesterday. He brings a much needed boost of grit but, as he says, he can do more than simply deliver a big hit.
In case you missed it - the announcement was made at 5 a.m.! - long time colour man Mike Farwell was officially named as the new play-by-play guy for the Rangers. He takes over from Don Cameron, who has retired.
Joining Mike in his old role will be former Rangers goalie Mike Torchia who played for the Blueshirts from 1988-92.
NHL camp rosters are beginning to trickle out. Ryan MacInnis is off to Arizona, Nick Magyar to Colorado and Dmitrii Sergeev and Opilka to St. Louis.
But yesterday, Florida released its rookie camp roster and F Mason Kohn was on the list.
Former Rangers captain Ben Fanelli was behind the bench for Team White in the morning scrimmage.
White won 1-0 over Blue in regulation. Connor Bunnaman scored with an assist to Doug Blaisdell. Luke Richardson allowed the goal while Luke Opilka, Dawson Carty and Jonah Capriotti were perfect in half a game.
The team did a five minute 3-on-3 after regulation to give Blue the 3-1 win. Goals in OT went Mason Kohn, Ryan MacInnis and Nick Durajlija.
Standouts: Bunnaman, Blaisdell, Nick Magyar and Scott Del Zotto.
