9/30/17 | Pavel Buchnevich said that his back is "definitely better" and that if he can remain healthy he will be able to play with "more confidence." (Newsday)
The past two days have featured Buchnevich on a line with Mika Zibanejad and Chris Kreider, the same trio that started last season together.
Alain Vigneault said on the first day of training camp that Buchnevich came to New York in the middle of the summer and hasn't had any back issues.
Vigneault said that Buchneviched followed the plan he was given and that he is a young player "that has a real solid skill set and potential."
He added that he is looking forward to see what Buchnevich brings to the table and said, "there is a guy who has so much offensive abilities and great skill set, I think he will come in and be a real good player for us."

Adam Rotter: I'm really excited about Buchnevich for this season. In the preseason he looked strong, confident and like someone who wanted to make plays with the puck. It was only the preseason but he looked so much more comfortable in his second season and that has to bode well for the Rangers. If he can remain healthy and stays on the top line, it's very possible he could be the breakout Ranger for this season.
