Update 1:30pm: It’s been noted that Asham has a minor groin strain, and it’s unknown when he will return. This is why Bickel was a forward, and why Eminger will likely slide into the bottom defensive pairing. It’s worth noting that the organization decided against calling up Brandon Segal.
Original Post: Per Pat Leonard, Torts has decided to shake up the lines a bit today:
#NYR practice lines: Nash-Richards-Gaborik, Kreider-Stepan-Callahan, Hagelin-Boyle-Pyatt, Rupp-Halpern-Bickel
At first glance, many will like these lines because it creates a super top line, and re-unites the “America” line of Kreider-Stepan-Cally. The third line is still pretty solid as well.
