Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports that the Rangers are among the teams showing interest in Cam Atkinson.

Atkinson, 25, is contractually at a similar stage in his career as Carl Hagelin, as he’s set to be a RFA this summer and will be UFA-eligible after the 2015-16 season. I like him as a player, but getting him at the expense of Mats Zuccarello doesn’t sit well with me. Atkinson does have a certain not-Bozak quality that I find attractive, however.
