Today’s Blueshirt Beat looks at another impressive performance by a New York Ranger prospect in the goal.
New York Rangers prospect Igor Shesterkin made his KHL debut playing for St. Petersburg SKA and he ended up winning the game with some conviction. He recorded 27 saves in a 2-0 shutout victory against Jokerit.

Twitter Between Teammates Gets Intense
Captain Ryan McDonagh was concerned about which team he would play for: the Kings or Zuccarello’s. Ranger forward Michael Grabner thinks McDonagh would be in charge of another part of the game. Nice to see some team banter before they even hit the ice.

J.T. Miller has had a good summer
In regards to his workouts, Miller told Calamia, “I started working out and training the beginning of June. I started skating again [in the middle of July]. It’s good. When I’m not skating, I go to the track and do my track training from 9 to 10 and then go to the gym after that for about an hour and a half every day. It started as Tuesdays and Thursdays we skate in the afternoon. Then we’ll move to skating almost every day.”
