Date: Team: Pos:

Alexandar Georgiev has been assigned to Hartford of the AHL.

The Rangers also announced the recall of Marek Mazanec in a corresponding move. Georgiev was victorious in a shootout against Columbus on Saturday and he has won his last three starts. He will probably be back with the Rangers shortly.

Marek Mazanec has been called up by the New York Rangers.

The Rangers also sent netminder Alexandar Georgiev to Hartford of the AHL. Mazanec has been up with the big club before this season, but he didn't see any action. Georgiev is probably down in the minors temporarily again for some playing time.

Mats Zuccarello (groin) participated in Wednesday's practice.

Zuccarello skated on the first line alongside Filip Chytil and Mika Zibanejad during the session. That is a great sign and it could indicate that Zuccarello will be ready to play on Thursday.

Chris Kreider thinks Filip Chytil is on the brink of a hot streak.

Chytil finally scored his first goal of the season on Monday and Kreider feels that took a weight off the 19-year-old's shoulders. "After he potted it, he was around the puck much more, using his legs on the forecheck and using his legs off the puck," said Kreider. "It’s hard when you’re going through a bit of a rough patch. When it turns, I’m sure he’s going to be as hot as a pistol the next few weeks." Chytil is worth keeping an eye on right now. Despite his slow start to the season, he has a lot of offensive upside.

Michael Lindqvist has been placed on unconditional waivers by the Rangers.

The next step will be to terminate his contract. In 16 games with the AHL's Hartford Wolf Pack this year, Lindqvist has three goals and seven points. He had been playing in Sweden previously.

Filip Chytil found the back of the net during Monday's 2-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks.

The Rangers got goals from two youngsters, as Chytil (19 years old) and Brett Howden (20) were their scorers on Monday. He started the game on the fourth line, but quickly found himself on the wing on the top line with Mika Zibanejad and Vladislav Namestnikov. Chytil now has one goal and four points in 18 games this season. The future is incredibly bright for him, but he still needs more seasoning before he becomes an impact player at the NHL level.

Henrik Lundqvist turned aside 25 of 26 shots during Monday's 2-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks.

Lundqvist allowed the game's first goal to Nikolay Goldobin early in the second period, but he was perfect the rest of the night. The Rangers netminder has been red-hot as of late, as he's 4-0-1 in his last five outings. The veteran owns a 6-6-2 record with a 2.54 goals-against-average and a .923 save percentage this season. The Rangers will go through some struggles this year, so Lundqvist's fantasy appeal will drop in the near future.

Brett Howden found the back of the net during Monday's 2-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks.

With the score tied at one in the third frame, Howden managed to whip a shot past Canucks goalie Jacob Markstrom. Howden finished the night with a plus-1 rating and two shots on goal and one takeaway in 16:59 of ice time. The 20-year-old is putting together a strong rookie season, as he's already accumulated four goals and 10 points in 17 contests. Howden isn't worth owning in standard fantasy leagues, but he definitely has a bright future ahead of him. Filip Chytil also scored for the Rangers in the win.

Mats Zuccarello is not on the ice for warmups and is not expected to play vs. the Vancouver Canucks.

This will mark the third straight game that Zuccarello misses. His 10 points in 15 games will be missed in New York's lineup.
Nov 12 - 6:45 PM

Brendan Smith is expected to be a healthy scratch on Monday night against the Vancouver Canucks.

Smith has a goal and three points in 16 games this season. Adam McQuaid (lower body), Mats Zuccarello (groin) and Pavel Buchnevich (broken thumb) will also miss the game.
Nov 12 - 6:43 PM

Henrik Lundqvist will be in goal on Monday night against the Vancouver Canucks.

Lundqvist's last start resulted in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Detroit Red Wings. The Swedish netminder will come into the game with a 5-6-2 record, a 2.65 goals-against-average and a .921 save percentage.
Nov 12 - 6:36 PM

Pavel Buchnevich is on the injured reserve list.

As mentioned early, Buchnevich is expected to miss the next four-to-six weeks with a broken thumb. With that in mind, it makes perfect sense for him to be on the IR. He has five goals and nine points in 14 contests this season.
Nov 12 - 4:17 PM

Pavel Buchnevich will be sidelined for four-to-six weeks because of a broken thumb.

Buchnevich suffered the injury on Saturday at Columbus. He had a goal and an assist in the contest over 15:41 of playing time. Buchnevich has nine points in 14 matches this season.
Nov 12 - 10:03 AM

Chris Kreider scored his eighth goal of the season Saturday.

Kreider is off to a great start with eight goals and 12 points in 15 games this season. The big winger had a tough season last year as he needed rib resection surgery to correct a blood clot problem in his arm. Expect a 30 goal, 50 point season if he can remain healthy.
Nov 11 - 7:49 AM

Mats Zuccarello (groin) could return to the Rangers lineup on Monday.

Zuccarello has missed the last two games with the injury but the thought is that he will return as the Rangers come back home to face the Vancouver Canucks after a two-game road trip. He has three goals and 10 points in 15 games. Look for Vladislav Namestnikov to fall down the depth chart after replacing Zuccarello on the top line this week.
