Rangers recall Jayson Megna

Posted by: | Comments (9)

The Rangers have recalled forward Jayson Megna from the AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack. This is Megna’s second stint with the Rangers this season, playing five games in his recent call up. He notched a goal and an assist in his first game, but was held scoreless thereafter. Megna’s recall likely means two things, 1) Rick Nash likely isn’t back for a few more games, and 2) the Daniel Paille/Tanner Glass duo is likely at its end.

Rangers return Jayson Megna to the AHL

Posted by: | Comments (1)

The Rangers have returned forward Jayson Megna to the Hartford Wolf Pack of the AHL, per Andrew Gross. Megna played five games in his call up, registering a goal and an assist in his first contest, but scoreless after. Megna received a lot of playing time in the top-six and on the powerplay, which was perplexing to more than a few folks.

The signing of Daniel Paille made the Megna move inevitable.

Rangers recall Jayson Megna

Posted by: | Comments (6)

The Rangers have recalled forward Jayson Megna from the Hartford Wolf Pack. It is unknown if he will play tomorrow, since the lines seemed set in Chris Kreider’s absence. Megna was one of the last Rangers cut during the preseason, and has a line of 7-11-18 in 37 games with the Wolf Pack. If he plays, it could be in place of Emerson Etem, who had a rough outing on Saturday night.

Magnus Hellberg and Chris Summers have been returned to the Hartford Wolf Pack of the AHL. Hellberg served as the backup for Antti Raanta while he was out, and Summers played a few games while Kevin Klein and Dan Girardi were out. It appears the Rangers expect to be fully healthy when the Christmas break ends on Monday.

The Rangers have made a trio of roster moves in preparation for tonight’s game in Winnipeg. Brady Skjei was returned to Hartford and Chris Summers was called up. My guess here is that the Rangers want a steadier presence in the lineup until Kevin Klein returns, as Skjei was prone to a few mistakes in his first call up. Could have just been jitters.

Magnus Hellberg was also called up to replace the injured Antti Raanta.

Rangers call up Brady Skjei

Posted by: | Comments (17)

The Rangers have called up defenseman Brady Skjei for tonight’s game against the Edmonton Oilers, per Sean Hartnett. The 2012 first round pickĀ is leading all Hartford Wolf Pack defensemen in scoring, and is by far the best defenseman on the roster. Skjei will take Dan Girardi’s place in the lineup.

Rangers recall Tanner Glass

Posted by: | Comments (53)

The Rangers have recalled forward Tanner Glass from the AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack. Glass was waived in October, as he did not have a spot on the roster when everyone was healthy. With Derek Stepan on the shelf, the Rangers needed a spare forward. Although Jayson Megna was called up over the weekend just in case a forward couldn’t play, clearly Alain Vigneault prefers to have someone like Glass around just in case.

It is unclear how long Glass will be with the team, but it’s logical to assume he will be here through the Western Canada road trip. Glass put up a line of 2-3-5 in 17 games with the Pack.

Per Pat Leonard, Glass will play for Emerson Etem, who is sick.

Rangers return Jayson Megna to Hartford

Posted by: | Comments (9)

The Rangers have returned forward Jayson Megna to Hartford. Megna was called up yesterday as a potential last minute replacement for a “game time decision” with one of the forwards. Obviously the forward in question played, so Megna was not used.

Worth noting: Megna is the first forward in line for a call up.

Rangers recall Jayson Megna

Posted by: | Comments (1)

The Rangers have recalled forward Jayson Megna from the AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack to replace Derek Stepan on the roster. Megna will likely be the team’s 13th forward, rotating in with Emerson Etem and/or Viktor Stalberg.

To make room for Megna, Derek Stepan was placed on LTIR, meaning he will be out at least three weeks. The timeline for Stepan’s injury is a 4-6 week duration.
