11:21AM: Igor Shesterkin and Pavel Buchnevich were in a car accident last night in Brooklyn.
Buchnevich is listed as day to day.
Shesterkin has a non-displaced rib fracture and will be reassessed in a couple of weeks.
Rangers President John Davidson said, “last night at 8:30PM there was a car accident involving two of our players, Igor Shesterkin and Pavel Buchnevich. It was in Brooklyn, Igor was driving and apparently a vehicle pulled a u-turn in front of them and there was a collision. The air bags were deployed immediately and the seat belts were being worn by both players, and thankfully for that. And I mean thankfully for that. They were taken to New York Presbyterian to be seen by our physicians. Buchnevich was quite shaken up, no significant injuries and he is listed as day to day. With Igor, there is a small upper-body rib fracture, it’s no displaced. The estimate as of right now, he will be reassessed with his injury in a couple of weeks. We are concerned about our two players who were in a car accident but through the air bag system they had in the vehicle and the seat belts, it could have been a heck of a lot worse.”
