Rangers place Peter Holland on waivers

Posted by: | Comments (7)

The Rangers have placed forward Peter Holland on waivers. This shouldn’t be much of a surprise. Chris Kreider has returned to the lineup, and the Rangers are going more towards youth. It’s good to see that he’s on waivers, and the Rangers didn’t return Vinny Lettieri to Hartford.

Holland was claimed off waivers by the Blueshirts, playing in 17 games. He put up a line of 1-3-4 during his stint with the Blueshirts. There are rumors abound, but I don’t think this is a move that foreshadows a trade. Just creates roster space for Kreider.

The Rangers have recalled forward Peter Holland from the Hartford Wolf Pack. They have also sent center Boo Nieves back to Hartford.

Holland was acquired by the Rangers earlier this season from Toronto for forward –and waiver claim– Adam Cracknell. Holland had a line of 5-9-14 with the Pack since his acquisition (16 games).

Nieves, the Blueshirts’ second rounder in 2012, had a line of 1-8-9 in 28 games, primarily in fourth line duties. Nieves found great chemistry with Jesper Fast and Paul Carey upon his call up, but had seen his game slip a little bit recent. In all fairness, everyone’s game has slipped.

A bit of a minor trade, as the Rangers have acquired forward Peter Holland from Montreal in exchange for forward Adam Cracknell. Holland has spent the year in the AHL, but as recently as last year was with the Leafs regularly.

Cracknell was acquired off waivers by the Rangers, and was sent to the minors relatively quickly thereafter. For a waiver wire claim, turning it into Holland isn’t that bad. But this is likely an AHL only trade.
