Rangers Call Up Andre Deveaux; Anisimov Not At Practice

October 30, 2011, by

The New York Rangers have called up forward Andre Deveaux from the Connecticut Whale. ¬†In nine games with the Whale this year, Deveaux has four goals, two assists, and 23 PIMs. ¬†This move is likely in response to some lingering affects of the Zenon Konopka hit on Artem Anisimov, a hit in which Anisimov landed awkwardly –face first– against the glass. Anisimov was not skating in practice today.

I missed the part where Kris Newbury was sent back to the Whale. So calling up Deveaux and sending down Newbury are the moves for the day, which eliminates the point I made about Anisimov being out of practice. In six games with the Rangers, Newbury did not register a point, but had 24 PIMs and a +2 rating.

    Deveaux is listed at 6’3 220 lbs and has had success in the AHL (23 goals last season). Will be interesting to see what he provides at this level.
