New York Rangers President and General Manager Chris Drury announced today that the team will open the 2022-23 training camp presented by Northwell Health on Wednesday, September 21 with player medical coverage. The team will hold their first on-ice session on Thursday 22nd September at the MSG Training Center in Tarrytown. The training camp will run through Sunday, October 9 and will include six preseason games, all starting at 7:00 p.m. ET – Sept. 26 vs. NYI, Sept. 27 at BOS, Sept. 29 vs. NJD, Sept 30 at NJD, Oct 5 vs BOS and Oct 8 at NYI.
This fall, the club invited 66 players to the training camp, divided into 41 forwards, 18 defenders and seven goalkeepers. Twenty-two players played at least one NHL game for Rangers last season while joining offseason Ryan Carpenter, Turner Elson, Gustav Rydahl, Vincent Trocheck, Ty Emberson, Andy Welinsky, Yaroslav Halak and Louis Domingue will represent the Blueshirts for the first time. Three draft picks (Maxim Barbashev, Bryce McConnell-Barker, Adam Sykora) from the Entry Draft 2022 will also participate in the camp. After a season in which he scored 52 goals and set a team-record 26 power-play goals, Chris Kreider will begin his 12th season (including the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs) with New York, the longest tenure by an active Ranger.
At the start of the training camp, the Rangers roster will be divided into three teams.
