Ranger Roster Moves

The Rangers have announced this morning that they have assigned Filip Chytil to the Hartford Wolfpack and have released Andrew Desjardins from his professional tryout.


Filip Chytil exceeded all expectations in pre-season has received little ice-time so far this season. Chytil, who has played in two games so far this season has notched zero goals and assists while taking one minor penalty. Chytil through two games is a minus two. He averaged 5 minutes of ice-time in his two games this season.

The Rangers were advised by Brad Richards to sign Andrew Desjardins to a professional tryout. Desjardins, the 31year-old had a sub-par pre-season receiving a two-game suspension for hitting New Jersey forward Miles Wood in the head.

These moves come as no surprise. Coach Alain Vigneault has not favored Filip Chytil when it comes to ice-time and Andrew Desjardins would never have beaten David Desharnais for the fourth-line center responsibilities.
