The Rangers won the tournament in 2007 (Anisimov, Dubinsky, Sauer & Staal) and lost in the championship game in 2011 (McIlrath, Miller, St. Croix & Hagelin).

The Rangers roster has yet to be announced nor has word if the games will be televised as they were in 2011.

…after everything Ranger fans endured last season with the lockout, including the cancellation of this tournament, it would be an absolute slap in the face if the Dolans didn't make sure these games were televised.

…i rarely get to watch Rangers prospects live so being able to actually scout these guys would be a huge treat as it was in 2011.
