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%.
