Veteran defenseman Alexei Semenov, who spent parts of the last two seasons with the Sharks and has also played for the Panthers, has joined camp on a tryout invitation and is on the ice today for the 45-lap endurance skate.
Haven't seen him skate yet but I can report he's tall, about 6-5. The Rangers were looking for a veteran who could compete for that sixth or seventh blue-line spot, a la Jason Strudwick. Kyle McLaren was originally invited but was forced to bow out due to injury.
Just a reminder: I'm live tweeting from camp on my Twitter account (AGrossRecord). Please check there as well as this blog.
