Bobby Farnham will attend New York Rangers training camp on a professional tryout.

The 28-year-old has played in 67 career NHL games, including 50 with the New Jersey Devils back in 2015-16. Last season, he played 71 games with the St. John's IceCaps in the AHL and three games with the Montreal Canadiens. It'll be difficult for him to earn a contract with the Rangers this fall. Even if he manages to get a deal with New York, expect him to spend most of the season in the minors.

Bobby Farnham has agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with the Montreal Canadiens.

Farnham had 10 points and 97 penalty minutes in 53 games between the Pittsburgh Penguins and New Jersey Devils last season. If he makes the Montreal Canadiens' opening game roster then he should once again be a good source of PIM.

Blandisi meanwhile posted 17 points with 34 PIMs and 39 hits in 41 games during his rookie campaign. A lot to be proud of for a couple of kids trying to stick around in the game's highest level.

Bobby Farnham wants to return to the Devils next season.

Farnham is slated to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season and is not sure the Devils want him back."I'd love to come back, but at the end of the season I'll find out," Farnham said. "I'd like to think I made enough of an impact to come back. I've enjoyed my time here and appreciated the opportunity. I would love to come back if the opportunity presented itself. But, to be honest, you never really know how the chips will fall. You never really know what people want until it comes down to that time. I'm just going to be patient and take it as it comes." The rugged winger was only known for his penalty minute totals before this season but Farnham has potted eight goals in a bottom-six role.
