Rangers Rumors: Team Linked To Five Free Agent Players

In an interesting development in the NHL, a significant number of free agents remain unsigned, creating speculation about potential one-year contracts or tryout offers.

Among these players, the New York Rangers have been linked to five names, according to reports from Larry Brooks of the New York Post.

Jesse Puljujarvi, who scored five goals and 16 points in 75 games last season, is one of the intriguing prospects on the market.

However, there is a potential concern about his availability for the upcoming season, as he recently underwent double hip surgery, which may lead to an extended recovery period.

Anders Bjork, who demonstrated promise with two goals and eight points in 14 games, is another player drawing attention.

Danton Heinen's respectable performance of eight goals and 22 points across 65 games has also caught the Rangers' eye.

Cal Foote, who scored two goals and seven points in 50 games, and Ethan Bear, with three goals and 16 points in 61 games last season, are two more players that the Rangers are reportedly considering.

Given the surplus of unsigned talent and the potential for cost-effective signings, the Rangers could find an opportunity to bolster their roster without overspending.

As the situation evolves, it remains to be seen how these links will pan out, but it's clear that the Rangers are exploring options to strengthen their team with skilled free agents. Photo Credit: Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports
