The Rangers have recalled goalie Magnus Hellberg from the Hartford Wolf Pack of the AHL. Hellberg was sent to Hartford earlier in the week while the Rangers had three days off. The Wolf Pack didn’t have any games either, so it wasn’t like he was seeing game action.
My only guess is that these were paperwork moves. I don’t really know the conditions of emergency call ups. I could be that he had to be returned or else he would no longer be an emergency call up? I don’t know. But he’s back.
Hellberg will likely be Raanta’s backup for the weekend back-to-back.
