Observations:

After playing the majority of 2016/17 in the ECHL with the Greenville Swamp Rabbits (33GP, 3.38 GAA, 0.904%), Skapski failed to earn a qualifying offer from the Rangers when his entry level deal expired at season end.  Skapski did attend the AHL Toronto Marlies training camp on a player try out however after being released the UFA has yet to sign on with another team for the 2017/18 season.  Geoff Kent

January 2017 – Mackenzie had an impressive 2014-15 campaign, posting excellent AHL numbers (28 GP, 2.40 GAA, 0.940 %) while also earning a shutout in his second start with the Blueshirts.  End-of-season hip surgery in mid-2015 resulted in a lengthy rehab and a rough start to the 2015-16 season in which the young goaltender split time between the ECHL and AHL.  Through fourty starts that season he posted a combined GAA just north of three and a save % slightly above 0.900.  Mackenzie's 2016-17 season has felt very similar, splitting time between Hartford and Greenville while posting similar numbers.  In only his third pro season time does remain for Mackenzie to play his way back up the depth chart and he is still worth holding onto in deeper fantasy formats. Geoff Kent
