In an expected move, the Rangers have returned winger Marek Hrivik to Hartford. Hrivik played four games with the Rangers, registering an assist while playing fourth line and penalty kill minutes. Hrivik only played to a 39% CF (-4.8% rel), but the team as a while didn’t really control possession while he was with the club in that small sample. This move was expected with the Eric Staal trade.
The move opens up slightly more cap space for a minor move to address the fourth line/penalty kill. Nothing is rumored, but they have the space available.
The Rangers have returned Brady Skjei to Hartford, which was an expected move following last night’s game. Skjei was an emergency call up to replace Marc Staal, and played 22 minutes in last night’s loss. The ice time was indicative of Skjei’s play, as he had a very strong game, including significant time on the penalty kill.
The Rangers have recalled defenseman Brady Skjei from Hartford for tonight’s game in New Jersey. No official word has been given, but one of the six healthy defensemen (not including Ryan McDonagh) will not be able to go tonight. This is Skjei’s second call up and his third game with the Rangers this season.
The Rangers have recalled forward Marek Hrivik for tonight’s game against Detroit. Hrivik, 24, has been with the Rangers organization since signing as an undrafted free agent prior to the 2012-2013 season. The winger has impressed in some camps, but never made the cut on a team that preferred to sign a veteran over giving a kid who might fail a chance. This is a refreshing move for the Rangers.
Daniel Paile, who was waived yesterday, cleared waivers and was sent to Hartford.
The Rangers have returned forward Jayson Megna to the Hartford Wolf Pack of the AHL. Megna was called up on Wednesday night to play in last night’s win over Minnesota. Megna played in place of Tanner Glass. He was held off the score sheet.
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.
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.
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.
