2022-23 Rangers Regular Season

Updates before tonight against the Senators

6:35PM: Jaro Halak will start for the Rangers. (MSG)

4:55 PM: Gerard Gallant met with the media prior to tonight’s game against Ottawa and said (NYR):

  • On Trocheck not taking part in line rushes, “I haven’t been out there, but the trainer said he’s fine and went back out.”
  • Is Trocheck going to play, “nobody told me any different. He’s out there skating, so he should be fine. I’m hoping.”


  • Is Kravtsov back in, “We’ll see….not telling you the lineup tonight, changing my strategy (smile).”
  • Is Lafreniere getting enough chances, “He’s playing well, I like the way he’s playing and competing. Now, again, we always talk about Laffy and you guys, sometimes, jump on the kid a little bit. He hasn’t had the same opportunities as some of the other young players. He comes here to a team with top-end players and doesn’t get first PP time and a lot of those other kids get that because they are on bad teams in the past. Now, Laffy and Kaapo don’t get all of those minutes, PP minutes. I’m happy with them, they are great development players and going to be real good players. They’ll continue to go.”
