Peter Holland will make his Rangers debut tonight and is slated to start the game on a line with Jesper Fast and Michael Grabner.
Alain Vigneault said that Holland tries to play a 200ft game and that both Chris Drury and Wolf Pack coach Keith McCambridge gave good reports on him.
Vigneault said that McCambridge praised Holland's work ethic and understanding of "the right way to play," that he was playing well in Hartford and "we just wanted to take a look at him."
Holland said that he is excited but a little nervous and that despite playing over 200 career NHL games, tonight feels like the first one. (NYR)
Asked what he can bring, Holland said that he likes to use his size and skating down low, get to the front of the net and added "they traded for me for a reason, they like what they saw in my game. I built some confidence in the AHL and I will try and bring it to this level." (NYR)
He said that when he was acquired the Rangers told him that they needed centers and that there would be a good opportunity for him. (NYR)
