MISE À DAY
A promising young defenseman available on the market, Nils Lundkvist, would be in the sights of the Canadians. And for several reasons, including his strong ties with members of the team's senior management.
In fact, the general manager of the CH, Kent Hughes, has already made it known that there is a lack of right-handed backs in the organization.
< p>On Thursday, the New York Post reported that the Rangers would be actively trying to trade Lundkvist, who is said to be frustrated with his lack of playing time with the team.
Fr In retaliation, the 22-year-old won't show up for training camp in order to put pressure on the Blueshirts' general staff.
Lundkvist is one of the most interesting fullbacks in the team since being selected with the 28th round of the 2018 draft. Last season was his first in North America and he split it between the National League and the American League.
With the Rangers, he had four points in 25 games, but other young defensemen like Zac Jones, and especially Braden Schneider, took him usage time with the large d club.
Still according to the New York Post, general manager Chris Drury would work with Lundkvist's agent, Claude Lemieux, to find a formation that would agree to give him an opportunity to crack the top 4 on the blue line.
Gifted with a certain offensive talent, Lundkvist had a few opportunities on the second wave of the power play, but seemed to struggle on the small ice North Americans. Its adaptation could take a season or two.
