According to Larry Brooks at the New York Post, Henrik Lundqvist and a half dozen of his teammates (Brad Richards, Rick Nash, Dan Girardi, Michael Del Zotto, Mats Zuccarello and Derek Dorsett) were on the ice together at the Rangers training facility on Monday.
Lundqvist added that he plans to skate five days a week until camp commences on September 12th.
Also of note, Ryan McDonagh is one of 35+ players who participated in the Octagon hockey camp in Minnesota yesterday.
Here's how he did...
Ryan McDonagh just stickhandled by 3 guys and scored a sick top-shelfer thru traffic. @jclong & crew captured for evening news— Michael Russo (@Russostrib) August 20, 2013
...can you say "Officially fired up"?
...i know it's only summer camp, but you've got to love that report on McDonagh. If he can add some semblance of offense to his game this season, his name will absolutely be in the discussion for Norris by the end of the year.
...surprised that Stepan wasn't skating with these guys at the training facility. Oh yeah, nevermind.
For some reason, Stepan never skates with the group in Minnesota although I don't know why. I would expect to hear he's on the ice in NY before MN. At this point I don't care where he's on the ice, I would just like to hear he's been seen somewhere so I know he's still alive lol
I'm reall stoked for this season. Last season was to short to get in a good swing of things. They got a good shot.
Con Smythe a little bit ahead of our selves boys the east has not gotten any easier if you don't recall I'm a huge fan but this year will b the toughest year competition wise it's not gunna be an easy hill to climb it should b neck an neck to the end from 1st thru 8th
If McDonagh adds offense to his game, it could be the Conn Smythe we're talking about. That's a pretty big gaping hole for this team!
@NikolaiNYR They haven't posted it on their website, but apparently the video aired last night on local television in Minnesota.
