New York Rangers Training Camp News

New York, NY - The New York Rangers took to the ice for training camp on Tuesday, and 24-year-old Brandon Dubinsky is getting out of the gate strong for the Blueshirts. The young forward was able to score a hat trick, plus another goal in the shootout to lead his Green Team over the Blue Team 7-6 in an overtime shootout. If he can carry his impressive pre-season play into the regular season, he could very well increase his playing time and his scoring opportunities for the Rangers.

Also making an impression in that scrimmage was newcomer Tim Kennedy who scored a pair of goals in the final minute of play for the Blue squad. Head coach John Tortorella was impressed with Kennedy and he, along with the rest of Blueshirts nation, will be looking forward to seeing more of the winger.

Other news and notes from the New York Rangers website from the training camp is an update on captain Chris Drury who expects to begin ‘dry land’ workouts on Wednesday to keep up with his conditioning.

In the afternoon scrimmage, it was a goaltending duel between Henrik Lundqvist and Martin Biron with the latter’s Red team posting a 3-1 victory. According to the Rangers website, Lundqvist twice blanked Marian Gaborik on separate breakaway goal attempts.
