The NY Rangers have assigned defenseman Libor Hajek to the Hartford Wolf Pack. Hajek, who had been struggling mightily all season and through most of last year, is long overdue for this reassignment. This should help his confidence and hopefully get him back on track. The Rangers obviously saw something in Hajek when they requested him in the Ryan McDonagh trade.
No subsequent move was made, so the Rangers are without a spare defenseman at the moment. Although Brendan Smith is also a defenseman.
