Rangers qualify six RFAs ahead of deadline

Per Larry Brooks, the Rangers have qualified six restricted free agents ahead of today’s deadline.

The Rangers qualified Filip Chytil, Igor Shesterkin, Libo Hajek, Tim Gettinger, Ty Ronning, and Adam Huska. All six were expected to be qualified, and the Rangers will retain their rights and receive offer sheet compensation should the issue arise. From an AHL standpoint, it’s clear the Rangers want to give Gettinger, Ronning, and Huska more time, which bodes well for how the organization thinks of them.

Of the non-qualified players, all of which will go to free agency, the only two of note are Yegor Rykov and Gabriel Fontaine.
