Hajek, 22, will enter the final-year of his entry-level contract in 2020-21.

He played 28 games with the Rangers last season, 23 in the AHL and joined the Rangers as part of their group that went to Toronto for the qualifying round.





Vitali Kravtsov, Lias Andersson and Yegor Rykov are Ranger prospects that have been loaned to play in Europe.

It’s expected that Hajek will be recalled from his loan once training camp begins.
