Rangers send Hellberg, Summers back to AHL

1 Comment

Magnus Hellberg and Chris Summers are on their way back to Wolf Pack.

On Wednesday, New York announced that Hellberg and Summers have been re-assigned to AHL Hartford, after both made their Blueshirts debuts over the last week.

Summers, a defenseman acquired along with Keith Yandle from Arizona, averaged 15:23 over three games with the Rangers, registering four penalty minutes.

Hellberg, acquired from Nashville during the summer, played 20 minutes in relief of Henrik Lundqvist during Sunday’s ugly 7-3 loss to Washington. The Swedish ‘tender made four saves on six shots.

Right now, it’s unclear what this means for the status of injured backup goalie Antti Raanta, or defenseman Kevin Klein.

Raanta has been out since getting hit in the mask with a shot against Minnesota last week, while Klein has been out since late November with an oblique injury.
