New York Rangers: Training Camp -Day 1 news and notes

New York Rangers head coach Gerard Gallant made it through his first day of training camp on Thursday as the team prepares for its first preseason game Sunday at MSG.

The boys are back. The New York Rangers laced up their skates and participated in their first day of camp with Gerard Gallant at the helm.

The players were divided into three teams along with a  goalie team.



Line Combinations

Now let’s remember this was the first day of camp, and the combinations aren’t etched in stone. Here is what Gallant went with yesterday when Team one played Team two representing what could be the top two lines to start the season next month.

Kreider-Zibanejad-Lafreniere
Panarin-Strome-Kakko

Line combinations for team three looked like this;

Goodrow-Chytil-Kravtsov
Blais-Rooney-Reaves

Highlights of the day

Adam Fox stepped onto the ice wearing his familiar #23 but with “NORRIS” on the back of his sweater.

 

Some new faces and new numbers were skating in Tarrytown along with returning Blueshirts



Funny Tweet of the Day

Former Rangers captain and current ESPN broadcaster Ryan Callahan had a great Tweet that captured the real Blueshirt fan.

Death, taxes, and over thinking the line combination on day 1 of camp! Only sure things in life.

Great way to end day one of training camp!
