ImpactSport-Express is also reporting that Eminger is set to join the KHL expansion team. Eminger wasn't able to crack the top-six group of the New York Rangers on a regular basis, so it's not surprising that he was permitted to walk as a free agent. He had three assists and a plus-9 rating in 35 games last year.

This type of reassignment has to get the blessing of the player and it can last for a maximum of 14 days.
