Rangers recall Chris Kreider; return Micheal Haley to AHL

March 20, 2013, by

The Rangers have recalled rookie Chris Kreider from the AHL after a one month stay with the Whale. Kreider, who was sent to Connecticut on February 28, scored six goals and added an assist in eight games since the demotion. Kreider seemed more confident with the puck and was making better decisions without the puck, which was a big part of the reason for his demotion.

To make room for Kreider on the NHL roster, Micheal Haley was returned to the AHL. Haley, who was called up to the Rangers on March 5, played nine games with the Rangers, finished his run with zero points and 12 PIMs and a -1 rating.

    Lets hope he is put on the 3rd line, with Miller, and Boyle. Move Pyatt to the fourth, and I think we could have some scoring from JT, and Chris! Let him play his game Torts!

      Torts isn’t allowed to line tinker!

      Maybe lindbergh can come over and prove that he’s a real deal and push Boyle down to the fourth line where he belongs. Then JT-Lindbergh-Kreider would be an excellent third line.

        You heard the Suit, “Torts isn’t allowed to line tinker” !!


        As I stated, with Torts, it’s patholgical!!!

        On a serious note if I can, will Lindberg be allowed to come and play this season, after the play-offs in Sweden? Would be interesting to see how he would do in the NHL!!
