The Rangers have assigned winger Vinni Lettieri to Hartford. Per Larry Brooks, it is to play in this afternoon’s game. However Lettieri may not be recalled following the game, and someone else may take his place. My guess is that if Lettieri is not recalled, it is because the Rangers want him to get consistent playing time.
If that is the case, I’d expect someone like Matt Beleskey to get the call up. There’s no real issue with ensuring Lettieri gets consistent playing time.
Or maybe it’s something as simple as creating space to recall Boo Nieves.
