Rangers recall Braden Schneider; Send Nils Lundkvist to Hartford

Braden Schneider recall

In a surprising move, the Rangers have recalled defenseman Braden Schneider, and sent defenseman Nils Lundkvist to Hartford.

For the life of me, I still don’t understand why Libor Hajek and Jarred Tinordi are on the roster. Neither are good, neither have been good, and both of Lundkvist and  Zac Jones (and probably Schneider) are better than that duo. Yet, here we stand, wondering what is going on.

Both Tarmo Reunanen and Tyler Wall were also reassigned to the Hartford Wolf Pack, but those were expected.
