Rangers recall ten players for playoffs

April 28, 2013, by

As expected, the Rangers have recalled several players to serve as this year’s “taxi squad” for the playoffs. With the Connecticut Whale out of the playoffs, the Rangers were able to recall ten players:

Katie Strang is reporting that only Haley will practice with the team. The rest of the players will drive to Washington and travel with the team. They will all serve as emergency replacements if the Rangers get bitten by the injury bug.

    No Ferriero???

      Same reaction here. Assuming he isn’t injured, I take this to men that he won’t be offered a contract (he’s an RFA). Also a little surprised at no Hrivik — and a lot surprised at Mashinter.

    • Dave says:

      I’d assume the kids are there just to watch. The real call ups would be Newbury and Haley. If they have more injuries, we will see what they do.

    The key to this series with the caps is the PK. The Capitals are very mediocre even strength, but their P.P. can bury a team very quickly. Boyle will be a huge assist as you posted earlier. Bickle will most likely get the nod if one of the Rangers defenders get a hard knock.
