Rangers Demote Grachev

On Sunday, the Rangers sent forward Evgeni Grachev down to Hartford of the AHL, leaving the roster with 22 players for opening night. Grachev had a pretty decent preseason, but this move should be considered to be more of a salary cap move, because the team will likely be signing training camp tryout, defenseman Alexei Semenov, to a new deal fairly soon. The Rangers are nice and snug against the cap and the demotion had to be made so the team could have seven defensemen for opening night.

A team update will be provided when the signing occurs, but for now, you can have a look at the previous table here.
