Larry Brooks of the New York Post reported Wednesday morning that the Rangers invited center Andrew Desjardins to training camp on a PTO:
Andrew Desjardins will be attending Rangers camp on PTO. 31-yo center played last two seasons in Chicago.

The 31 year-old Desjardins played in 46 games for the Blackhawks last season, tallying only 1 assist while averaging 9:24 in ice time per game.
Desjardins has an opportunity to grab a roster spot if he can impress during training camp, given the Rangers current center situation. He’s certainly at best a bottom-six option, but could provide some competition for Rangers’ free agent acquisition, David Desharnais.
Training camp begins later this week.
