The question, if there was one, about what would happen with Boo Nieves when he returned from his concussion has been answered. The center was returned to Hartford today, having seemingly recovered fully. He will rejoin the Pack, replacing Lias Andersson, who is now with the Rangers.
This also answers the question about what would happen with Andersson when the Rangers get some players back.
Nieves played 28 games with the Rangers last year, putting up a line of 1-8-9. He was slated to be the 4C this year, but the emergence of Brett Howden has slid Nieves down the depth chart.
