Pavel Buchnevich is expected to compete for a roster spot with the Rangers at training camp.
He will get a chance to land a spot on one of the team's top-two lines. "I think not quite a goal scorer but I'm a thinking player, a cerebral player," said Buchnevich when he was asked to describe his game. "A playmaker." Director of player personnel Gordie Clark loves the accuracy of Buchnevich's shot, though. Jun 29 - 9:20 AM

Pavel Buchnevich has agreed to an entry-level contract with the New York Rangers.

This move was anticipated, but now it's official. Buchnevich should be able to play in the NHL next season after scoring 16 goals and 37 points in 58 KHL contests in 2015-16. Betting on a player's success in the KHL to immediately translate to North American hockey is always a risk, but it's not hard to find examples of young players who adapted to the NHL quickly after posting strong numbers in the KHL.

It appears that Pavel Buchneivch is "getting closer" to an agreement with the Rangers.

Depending on how you structure the Rangers salaries next season, they have little to no room to include the talented youngster. One way or another they'll have to clear roster slot plus some cash, so expect an accompanying move with his announcement. Whenever that is.

Pavel Buchnevich underwent a minor procedure on his bursa sac and will be out for two-three weeks.

This will have no effect on the forward who the Rangers want to sign to an entry-level contract this off-season. Buchnevich was drafted 75th overall in 2013 and should have gone higher except NHL teams at the time were worried about Russian players remaining in Europe. Buchnevich had 13 goals and 37 points in 58 games this season in the KHL and is considered a playmaker. He could have a chance to crack the Rangers lineup out of training camp if he decides to come to North America this season.

The New York Rangers are very high on their top prospect Pavel Buchnevich.

The Rangers made the Russian their third round pick and 75th overall in 2013 and he has done nothing to disappoint them in the KHL ever since. "I thought he was ready to come over for this season, and I told him that last year," director of player personnel Gordie Clark said. "Pavel has a great work ethic and is driven to become the first player from his hometown of Cherepovets, Russia, to make it in the NHL. He’s been playing with men for a long time. He’s not a pure sniper, he’s more of a playmaker, but his skills and his passing are incredible." It was hoped that Buchnevich would come over after the KHL season but he was traded from the last place home team to SKA who are going to the post-season. Look for the talented Russian to play in the NHL next season.

Prospect Pavel Buchnevich won't join the New York Rangers next season because he believes it will be too difficult for him to crack their roster.

"It's too hard to make the New York Rangers roster now," said Buchnevich. So I decided to develop in the KHL for one more year." The 20-year-old scored 13 goals and 30 points in 48 KHL games with Cherepovets Severstal. He was New York's third round pick (75th overall) in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He is believed to be one the team's better prospects.
