After a three-point night in the AHL, Pavel Buchnevich is on his way back to the NHL.
The New York Rangers recalled Buchnevich this morning, the day after the 21-year-old forward had two goals and one assist in a Hartford Wolfpack win over Springfield.
“In order to make the deal we needed to make a move,” GM Jeff Gorton said, per the Daily News. “Another thing, Pavel needs to play. If he’s not going to play tonight (against Washington) I think we need to get him down to Hartford and play some games.”
Buchnevich has just one assist in his last 12 games for the Rangers.
