Ryan Lindgren hurt; Brandon Scanlin recalled

The Ryan Lindgren injury doesn’t appear to be as bad as initially thought, per Mollie Walker. The Rangers defenseman will be out a few weeks, and he avoided the worst case scenario. A few weeks is somewhat vague, as that could mean 3 weeks or more, but I think it’s safe to assume that, assuming the Rangers continue to win, he will be out until the playoffs. Maybe the season finale.

Lindgren has been a core part of the Rangers defense for a while now, but his inability to stay healthy has been a problem. This year is different, as the Rangers have both Zac Jones and Chad Ruhwedel to weather the storm.

Brandon Scanlin was recently re-signed to a two-year extension, so it’s clear the Rangers like what they’ve been seeing from him. With Connor Mackey injured, it was him or Matthew Robertson.
