Blais was a pending RFA. The Rangers acquired Blais and a second round pick last summer for Pavel Buchnevich.


Blais missed all but 14 games after tearing his ACL. Blais had been skating during the playoffs.

Adam Rotter: We never got to see all that Blais could bring after PK Subban and him came together and Blais tore his ACL. All those games that Julien Gauthier played, all those games where Greg McKegg, or any of the other forwards who barely saw the ice after the trade deadline, played were all in the spot that Sammy Blais was supposed to fill.

It’s hard to know where he slots in with so many other questions that need to be answered in the top-nine, but he brings size and underrated skill.
