Rangers send down Skjei, call up Hellberg, Summers

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.

Magnus Hellberg was also called up to replace the injured Antti Raanta.

    Purely cap related, Summers makes $300k less.

      Larry Brooks says it’s BS, but who knows.

      Severstal is last in their conference, have an average attendance of 3250 and is trending down. They might have to sell Buchnevich(who leads the team in scoring but is 8th in TOI), but who wants to buy an expiring contract without a new one in place? It reads like SKA isn’t high on him, so unless he signs himself another deal to stay in the KHL, he’ll be eligible to come over on Feb. 19. He didn’t even make the roster for the Karjala cup, so any inclusion of him in a preliminary roster by the RHF would be punitive.

        The Russian article I read basically stated Severstal isn’t into moving any of their players, believing it best to keep them for next year. But there is the NHL looming in Buch’s future, so maybe they deal him and he stays. Just couldn’t find any info other than one optimistic, but questionable article.

          North America would be stunned by the limited access they would have to athletes in Europe. So stories are cobbled together from rumors, supposition and fantasy, a lot like message boards.
