2021-22 Rangers

Igor Shesterkin off of IR and Patrik Nemeth enters Covid protocol

3:28 PM: The Rangers have announced that Igor Shesterkin has been taken off of IR and that Keith Kinkaid has been sent to Hartford.

They also announced that Patrik Nemeth has entered Covid protocol.

The Rangers next play on Wednesday against Montreal and then not again until the 27th against Detroit at MSG.


Adam Rotter: The Predators, last Sunday’s opponent, just had their season paused. Colorado, Tuesday’s opponent, had their season shut down yesterday and the Coyotes, Wednesday’s opponent, have a few players in Covid protocol, so it only seemed like a matter of time, combined with the rising cases in NY, before it hit the Rangers.

As for Shesterkin, it means that he has been cleared to play, but my guess is that he backs up on Wednesday, if that game even gets played.
