I can confirm that Rockstrom, the Rangers player personnel director for Europe who has been with the scouting staff for 21 years, is gone. His contract was not renewed, the team said. Rockstrom, who was at the Rangers prospect camp in Westchester during the first week of July speaking with Mikhail Pashnin, also scouted for the Red Wings from 1984 to 1989....
The Edmonton Journal, which first reported Rockstrom's departure, said that Kent Nilsson could fill the position. I'm told that's not accurate. No replacement has been named.
Nothing new to report on RFA Marc Staal....The roster for the Traverse City Tournament in September is supposed to be announced Monday. Expect to see some of the faces from the July camp, including D Ryan McDonagh.
