"We are excited to continue our relationship with the Greenville Road Warriors," said Rangers Assistant General Manager Jim Schoenfeld.

"The Road Warriors are thrilled to continue our affiliation with the Rangers," said Road Warriors Owner Fred Festa. "We have made it our goal to field a competitive team year in and year out. The players we receive every year through our affiliates are a huge part of building a Kelly Cup Contender."
Last season, 10 different players were assigned to the Road Warriors by the Rangers and their AHL affiliate, the Connecticut Whale. Among the Rangers and Whale prospects that suited up for the Road Warriors was goalie Jason Missiaen, who led the Road Warriors in wins with 22. Also assigned to the Road Warriors last season was Jyri Niemi. The Finnish-born defensemen tallied 21 points (9G, 12A) in 52 games for the Road Warriors.
"The Rangers are one of the iconic franchises in all of professional sports and we are excited to be working with such a prestigious organization," said Road Warriors General Manager & Executive Vice President Chris Lewis. "The renewal of our affiliation ensures that our players will have a competitive and professional environment to develop their skills and work toward their goal of playing at the NHL level."
