The 18-year-old forward was cut from the New York Rangers' training camp roster on Thursday and assigned to the Flint Firebirds (OHL).

As EHC Olten's team manager Marc Grieder tells the Oltner Tagblatt, he had been in contact with Brennan Othmann's agent and will contact him again regarding a potential return to EHC Olten. However, it looks like he will start the season with his junior team.

“I think I met my expectations here, maybe exceeded them a little, but I came in here wanting to learn a lot. I want to take that back to junior,” he told the New York Post. “I want to be the top guy in my league in junior, a top-three guy, a top-five guy. I think since the first day I got here [for development camp] about a month ago, I think I got a lot stronger, skating and battling with the older guys."

Othmann, who was drafted 16th overall by the New York Rangers, appeared in 34 regular-season games for the Mice last season, recording seven goals and nine assists.
