Boo Nieves sent to Hartford

The Rangers have announced that Boo Nieves has been sent to Hartford.

Nieves played in four games since being called up on 11//24, scratched for two others, and aceraged 7:32 per game, had 2 shots on goal, 6 shot attempts and 4 PIM.

Sending Nieves down indicates that Greg McKegg is likely to return after missing the past six games with a lower-body injury.


With no other corresponding moves, it’s likely that Marc Staal may also be ready to return in place of Libor Hajek who hurt his knee last night.
