The Rangers had a player in their pre season camp who was expected to make the team but we were having difficulty "getting his release." Who was the player and where does the matter now stand?

I believe you're referring to Swedish import pick Lias Andersson. He signed with HV71 of the Swedish Hockey League and can't report here until after this season.

No.It wasn't an import. I believe it was a Canadian. Probably from Ont.
Thanks anyway.

Perhaps Matt Ferrari ... ?

He's now playing with the OJHL North York Rangers (+ Keegan Blasby too) via the Toronto Jr. Canadiens, Newmarket Hurricanes & Bowling Green University. Seems his parents possibly wouldn't release him from their NCAA dreams :roll:

That's what I thought, but I don't think there was an issue with being released from somewhere, just straight up cut from the team.

Liam Peyton

The Rangers reportedly want to use a Junior B card on him, but he is currently "on loan" to the Cumberland Grads AAA Midget Team while the two teams sort out his status. That's why you saw him introduced on opening night (wearing number 12), but not in the lineup (that night, or any game since).

Liam Peyton was traded Oct 5th from the Cumberland Grads to the Gloucester Rangers in the CCHL. Scored 2 goals in a 10-3 loss and pointless in his other 5 games.

Peyton was the player I was thinking of. Thanks for the update.
