General manager Chris Drury isn’t done reshaping the new age of New York Rangers hockey – even if it means parting ways with a long-time face in the locker room. 

New York let go of their head Athletic trainer Jim Ramsay as first reported by Arthur Staple of the Athletic. Ramsay had been with the team since 1994 and was a part of several Olympics as Team Canada’s head trainer.

Ramsay’s dismissal is the latest of a series of changes the front office has made after their first-round exit to the New Jersey Devils early in May. Head coach Gerard Gallant and several assistant coaches were all fired a week after their elimination. 

It appears the Rangers are looking to fill the head coaching position at the very least. 

The Blueshirts have received permission to meet with Toronto Maple Leaf’s assistant coach Spencer Carbery according to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet. Carbery was signed onto Toronto at the start of the 2021 season and has experience coaching at the AHL level with the Hershey Bears (Washington affiliate). This comes after the Maple Leafs parted ways with general manager Kyle Dubas Friday afternoon. 

Carbery, 41, is scheduled meeting with the Rangers is the third interview he’ll have with NHL clubs per Friedman with the Capitals, and the Ducks are also interested. He has 10 years of experience as a player but never made it to the NHL. 

New York has thrown a wide net to replace Gallant with other coaching names like Kris Knoblauch and Jay Leach also potential candidates, with veteran names
