Blueshirts Trim Roster

From Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants:

Of the players sent to Hartford, forwards Dane Byers, Kris Newbury and Jeremy Williams all must pass through waivers.

To Hartford:
G: Chad Johnson
D: Wade Redden
F: Dane Byers, Evgeny Grachev, Kris Newbury, Dale Weise, Jeremy Williams, Mats Zuccarello

Released from tryouts:
D: Garnet Exelby, Brandon Manning, Alexei Semenov

I thought the team would give Mats Zuccarello a few more pre-season games to strut his stuff. With that said, however, it appears that Zuccarello was bound for Hartford no matter what.

What is surprising is that Alexei Semenov was released from camp. I figured that he could provide the Blueshirts with a steady physical presence as the team’s 7th defenseman.

Other than that, no real surprises as the roster begins to come together as the team gets ready for their first regular season game against the Buffalo Sabres on October 9th.
