Will Kaapo Kakko be the next Rangers young player loaned

The New York Rangers won’t be playing hockey again for several months. That is a long time to wait, especially when you want to develop young talent. John Davidson and Jeff Gorton need to take this into account when it comes to certain players.

Since the 2021-22 NHL season won’t be starting for another 3 months, they have already made the decision to loan both Vitali Kravtsov and Libor Hajek to clubs overseas. Teams all over the league are doing it as well, so the idea that Kaapo Kakko could be next is making more sense.

At 19 years-old, Kakko is still developing, regardless of the fact that he played the whole season with the Rangers last year.
