Ryan Strome in COVID protocol; Rangers recall Greg McKegg

Is letting Ryan Strome become a free agent such a bad thing?

Ryan Strome is in COVID protocol, and will be unavailable for tomorrow night’s game. The Rangers have recalled center Greg McKegg to fill in the lineup spot.

Based on this, Filip Chytil will get the 2C spot, with Kevin Rooney moving to 3C and McKegg in the 4C role. It seems odd that Morgan Barron wasn’t recalled, but given this is a short term recall, they may not want to yo-yo him.
