The NY Rangers have made their second move of the day. First they waived Micheal Haley, and now they have made a long-needed move, assigning Lias Andersson to the Hartford Wolf Pack and recalling Tim Gettinger. Lias’ ice time has been the subject of a lot of discussion, and with Saturday’s paltry 3:38 in ice time still lingering, the Rangers decided it was time to boost his confidence and get him big minutes with the Pack. This worked with Filip Chytil.

Andersson finished his first Rangers stint with an assist in 17 games playing exclusively on the fourth line, mostly with Brendan Smith and either Haley or Greg McKegg.

Gettinger, the Rangers’ sixth round pick in 2016, has a line of 4-2-6 in 17 games with the Pack. He will fill the 4C role for now.
