Bickel is in NY and skating as he tries to make the Rangers as a depth defenseman this season.
He told the Rangers website, "I'm really looking forward to it. It's a clean slate. I'm not looking to make excuses for last season. I'm in really good shape right now and I am happy for the opportunity."
"It was a difficult year for a lot of reasons but I am not putting any thought into what happened last year. "
He is a UFA after the season with a cap hit of $750,000 and has also played forward in his career.
