Kaapo Kakko's return to the Rangers looks like it could be sooner rather than later.

The second pick of the 2019 NHL Draft was on the ice for the Rangers' optional pregame skate on Thursday.

Kakko was placed on injured reserve with an upper-body injury on Sunday after suffering the injury the night prior in Montreal against the Canadiens.

Upon being placed on IR, he was slated to miss at least the Blueshirts' next three games. He is eligible to return on Monday in Ottawa against the Senators.

Kakko had 17 points (nine goals, eight assists) in 48 games played last year.
