With the weather conditions and flooding across the New York region, the game scheduled for tonight on the Island has been postponed until tomorrow night. In addition the Rangers have placed six veterans on waivers for purpose of reassignment.
Of the six, perhaps the biggest surprise is Alex Belzile who came into camp fighting for the reserve roster spot, and appears now to have fallen behind Brodzinski in that respect. Brodzinski can play all three forward positions, and certainly has had many offensive chances through his preseason appearances to date. Belzile too has been very noticeable, but as a specialist winger on a team that is deep in that area, perhaps will have to bide his time for the moment.
Joining Belzile will be forwards Anton Blidh, Turner Elson and Riley Nash, along with blueliners Ty Emberson and Connor Mackey. While the Rangers don’t necessarily have to reassign these players, it’s likely that they will join Hartford should they clear waivers at noon Eastern tomorrow.
Following the announcement for the veterans, the Rangers also made several other reassignments
