The Rangers signing of Puempel to a one-year deal was expected, but whether he remains with the team remains to be seen. They needed one more forward under contract who was eligible to be selected by the Vegas Golden Knights in the upcoming expansion draft.

In 40 games with the Blueshirts, Puempel scored six goals and added three assists for nine points.
