Matt Beleskey will be joining Hartford. He cleared waivers this afternoon, and was sent to Hartford immediately after. Beleskey might be back with the Rangers eventually if there are injuries, but my guess is he’s there until after the trade deadline.
It appears that, even with a rebuilding team and at half the cap hit, the Ranger still didn’t want him on the club, at least not yet. I guess they prefer Cody McLeod?
Beleskey will carry an $875,000 cap hit while in the AHL.
