Here's the glorious proof of Kreider's camp presence (via NY Rangers)…
…with the way Kreider has played for the Whale this season, I'm assuming he couldn't get to Rangers camp quick enough.
…no shock to see Gilroy in camp, who will be an insurance policy in case the Rangers can't get a contract worked out with Del Zotto. Gilroy is having a solid year offensively with the Whale (6g, 9a), but has been brutal on the defensive end (-16). He'll be playing for an NHL contract in camp, so I expect him to raise the level of his game.
After today's session Gaborik addressed the status of his surgically repaired shoulder (via NY Rangers)…
"feels fine, knock on wood…to get back here, it's an exciting time"
Also, you might have noticed Kreider's practice jersey has the Rangers crest on it and not the normal Lady Liberty. Apparently, the Rangers have done away with with the very popular logo.
…that's a shame. Was a big fan of Liberty jerseys. An end of an era.
