The Rangers have placed defenseman Peter Zamorsky on unconditional waivers to terminate his contract. Zamorsky was signed as an undrafted free agent out of the Czech league in June of 2014. Zamorsky never made the cut for the Rangers, and was getting passed on the depth chart by guys like Brady Skjei and Ryan Graves. Zamorsky will return to the Czech Republic, and he will be removed from the reserve list.

The Rangers also placed goalie Cedrick Desjardins on regular waivers, and he will be sent to the AHL. Desjardins was injured, so he couldn’t be waived prior to today.

Richard Nejezchleb was sent down to the ECHL as well.

Tanner Glass clears waivers

Posted by: | Comments (29)

As expected, Tanner Glass has cleared waivers. Assuming he is sent to the Hartford Wolf Pack, the Rangers will clear $950,000 in much needed cap space. The Rangers will retain a $500,000 cap hit for Glass as a part of the Wade Redden rule.

Rangers place Tanner Glass on waivers

Posted by: | Comments (44)

The Rangers have placed winger Tanner Glass on waivers. Glass appears to have been beaten out by Jarret Stoll for the 13F position, and his $1.45 million cap hit was putting the Rangers in a precarious position. If unclaimed and the Rangers send him to Hartford, the Rangers will only clear $950,000 of his salary on the cap. The Rangers will retain a $500,000 cap hit, per the Wade Redden rule.

Rangers place Nick Tarnasky on waivers

Posted by: | Comments (3)

In one of those “wtf” moments of the day, the Rangers have placed forward Nick Tarnasky on waivers. Tarnasky was on the training camp roster, but was injured. Injured players cannot be waived. So this is more of a paperwork thing. When Tarnasky clears, he will go to Hartford.

Megna/Diaz clear waivers

Posted by: | Comments (12)

Both Raphael Diaz and Jayson Megna cleared waivers this afternoon, and will report to the Hartford Wolf Pack. Megna clearing was no surprise, but it is relatively surprising that Diaz cleared. There are a few teams that could use a cheap, capable defenseman –specifically Boston, who is without Zdeno Chara and Dennis Seidenberg– but I guess teams want to see what they have internally first.

Just a quick waivers update with all the cuts: Luke Adam, Brian Gibbons, Ryan Bourque, and Chris Summers were placed on waivers. This was expected, as they were cut after last night’s game.

The lone Ranger on waivers prior was Marek Hrivik, who cleared waivers today.

The New York Rangers have placed forward Ryan Malone on unconditional waivers. If he clears, the two can part ways and mutually terminate Malone’s deal. Malone has been in Hartford for the majority of the season, so his contract does not count against the Rangers cap. If/when he clears, the Rangers will open up a spot on their reserve list, which was at 50 (I believe). An extra spot gives them more wiggle room at the deadline.

Rangers place Mike Kostka on waivers

Posted by: | Comments (5)

The New York Rangers have placed defenseman Mike Kostka on waivers, as Dan Boyle is set to replace him in the lineup. Kostka’s stint in the lineup, first game and pair of epic turnovers aside, wasn’t terrible. He was a sub-50% possession player in 57% OZ starts, but he’s the 8D on the depth chart, so expectations are a part of why I say “wasn’t terrible.”

I doubt he gets claimed, so he’s likely Hartford bound.

Lineup notes: Fast, Glass in tonight

Posted by: | Comments (2)

Despite earlier reports that Tanner Glass may be out with a back injury, he will be in the lineup tonight against the shorthanded Columbus Blue Jackets. Jesper Fast, who blocked a shot awkwardly on Thursday, is also in the lineup. Both of these reports are per Andrew Gross. Cam Talbot gets the start.

Also, Matt Lombardi cleared unconditional waivers, and the Rangers will terminate his contract. This will give the Rangers much needed flexibility in the trade market.

The Rangers have placed center Matt Lombardi on unconditional waivers, with the intent on terminating his contract, per Renaud Lavoie. Sounds like Lombardi didn’t want to play in the AHL, and will likely go back to Switzerland. Lombardi was given a two-year deal by the Rangers as insurance for the 3C position, but was beaten out by J.T. Miller.

Lombardi and Steven Kampfer are in the running for shortest Ranger careers ever.
