Two huge thumbs up to the Rangers and MSG Network for broadcasting the games. This will give Rangers fans a chance to see the stars of tomorrow compete against the league’s top prospects. Sadly for American fans, getting a chance to see any prospects live after the pre-season or the injury call-up is very seldom achieved. Now, fans can see players like Ryan Bourque, Christian Thomas and Dylan McIlrath live.
