Waiver Wire

Rangers assign Chris Mueller to Hartford

With the Rangers in need of dropping one more forward to get to the 23 man roster (deadline was 5pm today), the Rangers assigned forward Chris Mueller to the Hartford Wolf Pack. Mueller was waived yesterday and cleared today, but was not immediately assigned to the AHL.

This likely means that Kevin Hayes will not head to the IR, as had been speculated.

  • I am glad Mueller cleared waivers as I think the Rangers may need him before Stepan returns. Its a big leap to expect Hayes, Fast or Duclair to step into a regular spot and its likely MSL will be returned to the wing. The Rangers open against the Blues, then Columbus and the Leafs. IMO all 3 teams look more prepared then the Rangers at this juncture of the season.

        • They certainly have some tough matchups with Stepan out, and you are certainly correct that expecting too much from Hayes/Duclair is irresponsible.

          That said, Fast will be fine.
