Bell to debut, Wolski a healthy scratch

Brendan Bell is set to makr his first appearance as a Rnger tonight, and it will be his first NHL game since April 11th, 2009 when he played for the Ottawa Senators.   He was a -3 in that game and you’d have to go back almost another month, to March 17th, 2009 for his last […]

Zuccarello Sent Down; Newbury Called Up

by Jamy Baron We are three games into the regular season and the Rangers have sent down Mats Zuccarello to the Connecticut Whale. Kris Newbury has been called up to replace him on the roster. Averaging only 8:26 in ice time, this demotion is necessary for Zucc’s development. He isn’t going to get any better by playing 4th line minutes […]

More Line Changes?

The Rangers had a day off yesterday, but were back at practice today albeit with a few exceptions.  Sean Avery was officially assigned to the Connecticut Whale early this week, and reported for duty yesterday – Bergen Record.  Although, not exactly.  Avery has a shoulder injury – New York Post – and while the MRI was negative, he’ll get […]

Rangers back in New York

The Rangers are back in New York, and it sounds like John Tortorella is much happier having put the European trip behind him.  With a full week between games, he’s getting a chance to run the team through practice this week, a luxury he didn’t have as much in a hectic schedule to start the […]

Rangers Staaled

A tough start to the season just got a whole lot tougher for the Rangers.  The loss of Marc Staal for the beginning of the season to headaches, neck pain or concussion-like symptoms – depending on which story you prefer at any point – suddenly makes the defense look a whole lot less dependable. Yes it’s true […]

Avery Waived

Per Larry Brooks on Twitter, Sean Avery has been placed on waivers,  This means Erik Christensen will get the 13th spot and Avery will be reassigned to Connevticut if he clears by noon tomorrow.  The move is moderately surprising given Christensen’s so-so form in the preseason, but Tortorella and Avery have never seemed to be able to get on the […]

Second Round Of Cuts Made

by Jamy Baron This morning, General Manager, Glen Sather has announced the Rangers’ second round of cuts. Some of these cuts may come as a bit of a surprise, but rest assured they were for the most part, the right decisions. Player(s) sent to the Connecticut Whale: (D) Blake Parlett, (D) Tim Erixon, (F) Ryan Bourque, (F) Carl Hagelin, (F) John Mitchell, […]

Today Is The King’s Day

by Jamy Baron Today is the day we’ve all been waiting for. Henrik Lundqvist returns home to Sweden to play there for the first time since he left Frolunda to come to New York. Today will be an extremely emotional day for Henrik as he will be squaring off against his old teammates and will have many […]

Staal Sent Home

The biggest news out of Day 4 of Training Camp was that defenseman Marc Staal has been sent home as a precaution after he reportedly wasn’t feeling well.  The Rangers’ #1 defender is being treated cautiously following off-season post-concussion like symptoms, but this is certainly not a welcome development for the team. Already to be limited to […]

Day 2 Summary

The Rangers completed their skating workouts Saturday with a second set of drills.  Marian Gaborik – who had been in his native Slovakia – returned to the ice, as did Artem Anisimov after he received a clean bill of health on his knee. Mike Sauer, still nursing a tender knee, skated on his own and could be inserted into the full […]
