Unconfirmed rumor, but Russo is an Islanders prospect who is still unsigned and will be a free agent in August after finishing his career at Notre Dame. Right handed Dman would put up a very impressive 15 goals and 41 points in 40 games this season. Makes sense for the Rangers to be interested because they are always after these types of NCAA Dmen and I'm sure they have seen plenty of him from watching Fogarty. Russo put up 15 points in 21 games last season before being ruled academically ineligible for the 2nd half of the season. He reportedly used the time off to add size and improve his defensive game.
