Call Ups/Demotions

Rangers recall Brandon Halverson

The Rangers have recalled goalie Brandon Halverson from the Hartford Wolf Pack for tonight’s game against the Ottawa Senators. Antti Raanta will get the start, and Halverson will serve as the backup, as Henrik Lundqvist is out with the flu.

Halverson has had a bit of a shaky year, spending time in the ECHL as well as the AHL. In his six AHL starts, he’s sporting a 3.88 GAA and a .861 SV% although the overall quality of the Wolf Pack team likely plays a role in those poor numbers. In his four ECHL starts, he has a 1.70 GAA and a .943 SV%.

  • Halverson is far from a finished product. Benny will need 2 years with him in Hartford to get him on the right path.

      • HOW ABOUT GETTING A TEAM THAT CAN GET THE FRICKIN PUCK OUT OF THEIR OWN ZONE AND NOT SPENT THE WHOLE NIGHT THERE? LOOK AT THE NUMBER OF SHOTS AND ATTEMPTED SHOTS AS THE RANGERS STAND AROUND AND WATCH. RANGERS CONSTANTLY BEING BEATEN
        TO PUCKS IN THEIR OWN ZONE JUST LIKE LAST YEAR…

      • I would take the trade if it meant we get back what we need to make a real run, this team is not lifting the cup.

        so for example, if we traded the king and say Girardi for Murray and Letang, even though he may not be exactly the best choice for D. I would take it for a better chance at the cup the next 2 years…

        I’m sure their are other scenarios.. but I am just dreaming no team is doing anything for Girardi…

        and I love henrik, but he is aging, and this team will not get him the cup

    • Thanks, Pas. I see your points, but I’ve not given up on a cup for Henrik as a Ranger. I mean, he deserves it! I hope that Gorton is working on that scenario. I hope AV can adapt to the reality of a limited duty Gerardi/Klein world. RD1 for some of our depth at forward and we’ve got as good a shot as anyone – well, almost anyone.

      • From your lips to Gods hear. I love the king, I want him to lift the cup, I love the Rangers more…

        so if he needs to shipped out, I say do it now while his return is large.

        thats all….

        Its so nuts, the team is too good to replace the coach too…
        its like AV is protected on high…
