The New York Rangers have assigned forward Pavel Buchnevich to AHL Hartford.

Buchnevich does not require waivers to be sent down, so this is not technically a conditioning assignment.

But it’s for conditioning purposes all the same.¬†Buchnevich has not played since Nov. 12 due to back spasms, an issue that required him to strengthen his core.

The 21-year-old winger has four goals and four assists in 10 games for the Rangers this season.

The Wolfpack plays tonight and tomorrow in Hartford, then Sunday at Providence.
