According to a tweet by Genadi Boguslavski, a Russian hockey writer for the Sovetsky Sport, the New York Rangers are in talks with left winger Alexander Frolov.
The 28-year-old registered 19 goals and 51 points last season for the Los Angeles Kings.
Frolov would help the Rangers' scoring upfront, something they lacked greatly last season.
Paired with Marian Gaborik on the top line, the signing would make the team a playoff contender, something they potentially aren't right now.
In order to fit Frolov under the cap, the Rangers would have no choice but to demote defenseman Wade Redden to Hartford of the AHL, something that has been thrown around since the end of the regular season.
