Things continue to happen fast on East Avenue.
Tonight, the Rangers cut ties with forward Dylan Seitz and sent his rights to the Moncton Wildcats in the QMJHL.
Seitz had yet to play this season after suffering a shoulder injury in a pre-season fight but was nearing a return.
The Eden, N.Y. native was coming off a productive rookie season that saw him score eight goals and add 10 assists in 60 games.
He was a feisty forward in Kitchener but playing time is scarce and it's hard to see where he was going to fit upon his return.
It's funny. In recent years all the Rangers wanted were draft picks and prospects. Now they have tons. This is what happens when teams get too many promising players. They all want - and deserve - ice time but there is only so much to go around.
A lot of people are asking me why the Rangers didn't trade Seitz for an asset of some kind. I haven't had a chance to speak to GM Mike McKenzie and probably won't until Friday.
But, from my experience, when any team in the OHL moves a player and does not get a return it usually means nothing was being offered. When I get a clear explanation, I'll pass it along.
