They will then play 24 hours later on Saturday, taking on the Buffalo Sabres. On Monday, September 15th the Rangers will play the Carolina Hurricanes followed by their placement game the following day.

College pick-ups Ryan Haggerty and Mat Bodie will be in the lineup for the Rangers as will 2014 draft picks Keegan Iverson, Ryan Mantha, Richard Nejezchleb, Daniel Walcott, and Brandon Halverson.

This tournament is always a great meter for some of the Rangers prospects coming up through the system. The team gets to see what qualities the younger players bring as well as who may be ready to play at the next level. They face high-end talent from other NHL organizations. The other great thing about this tournament is it marks the beginning of hockey season as training camps usually open the following week.
