Per Renaud Lavoie, the Rangers have waived center Matt Lombardi and defensemen Steve Kampfer and Mike Kostka. As a formality, they have also placed goalie Cedrick Desjardins on waivers, but that was expected. He wasn’t on waivers during the┬álast round of cuts because he was injured, and injured players cannot be waived.

This means that Matt Hunwick has likely won the 7D spot (assuming Dylan McIlrath is sent to Hartford for big minutes). This also means that Lombardi’s injury likely cost him a legitimate shot at cracking this roster. I assume he will be a short term injury call up if need be.
