It’s that time again! It’s Ranger game day and it’s Friday! Here are today’s links to Rangers news from around the interwebs, I hope you enjoy!
Yesterday Taylor Pyatt was claimed off waivers by the Pittsburg Penguins. Given the status of the Penguins’ roster, we will most certainly see Pyatt on the ice tonight. The NHL website has a quick blurb on the topic. This lineup change should add a little more intregue to tonight’s game.
Yesterday Henrik Lundqvist unveiled his helmet for the Stadium Series. The helmet was designed and brought to life by Daveart, who has created many of the most notable goalie masks in the NHL. Lundqvist wanted to pay homage to the Yankees and man has he done a great job.
The Rangers also agreed to terms on an entry-level contract with Anthony Duclair, just hours after Pyatt was claimed off waivers. The official announcement was posted to NHL.com yesterday afternoon. Scouting reports are positive regarding Duclair.
Don’t forget to check in with the “Bleeding Blueshirts” podcast hosted by John Giannone and follow him @jaygeemsg on twitter. Tell John we sent you! There are already several great episodes available, I’d be willing to get there are new episodes on the way VERY soon, if you know what I mean.
We will have some great coverage on the game tonight as well as other topics throughout the day. Remember to follow our entire staff on twitter and let us know what you think about what is going on with the team and the site!
