What Chris Drury and Glen Sather said on Thursday

Rangers President and GM Chris Drury and Senior Advisor Glen Sather met with the media on Thursday morning and said (NYR):

  • What are your emotions like, (Drury) “It certainly was a whirlwind 24-hours, not something I expected. It was an honor and pleasure to work with JD for the last two-years, I grew up in Connecticut on ‘Oh Baby’ so it was great to get to know him and work with him and learn a lot from him. Jeff Gorton, I really can’t say enough good things about him, the kind of person he is, what he did for me and my career, I never met him before I came back to interview for the player development job and since then he’s taken me under his wing every step of the way. He’s a great man and a terrific, terrific GM and I’m sure he’s going to land on his feet very soon.”
Tom Wilson Situation

Rangers fined $250,000 by NHL for Tuesday’s statement

The NHL has announced a $250,000 fine for the Rangers based upon Tuesday’s statement about Tom Wilson and George Parros.

From the NHL: “Public comments of the nature issued by the Rangers that were personal in nature and demeaning of a League executive will not be tolerated,” said NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman. “While we don’t expect our Clubs to agree with every decision rendered by the Department of Player Safety, the extent to which the Rangers expressed their disagreement was unacceptable. It is terribly unfair to question George Parros’ professionalism and dedication to his role and the Department of Player Safety.”

2020-21 Rangers Justin Richards

Rangers call up Tim Gettinger, Justin Richards and Jonny Brodzinski

The Rangers have called up forwards Jonny Brodzinski, Tim Gettinger, and Justin Richards from Hartford.

The call ups are because Julien Gauthier is out for the final two games of the season and Pavel Buchnevich could be suspended for his hi-stick on Anthony Mantha.

From the Rangers:

  • Brodzinski, 27, has skated in 14 AHL games with the Wolf Pack this season, registering six goals and 11 assists for 17 points, along with a plus-four rating and eight penalty minutes. He leads Hartford in points per game in 2020-21 (1.21). Brodzinski has also skated in four NHL games with the Rangers this season, and he tallied his first goal/point with the Blueshirts on Feb. 26 vs. Boston.

Pavel Buchnevich will have a hearing for high-sticking Anthony Mantha

10:09AM: The NHL’s Department of Player Safety has announced that Pavel Buchnevich will have a hearing today as a result of his high-sticking penalty against Anthony Mantha last night.

Buchnevich was assessed a five-minute major for cross-checking and a Game Misconduct.

Leading up to the incident, Buchnevich checked Mantha to the boards, a check that Buchnevich got the worst of, and then Mantha swiped at Buchnevich’s head and then slashed him 3-4 times to the back of the leg.

What David Quinn said after the loss to Washington

David Quinn met with the media following the Rangers loss to Washington and said (NYR):

  • On the start of the game and did guys volunteer for it, “If they did I didn’t know about it. When something like that happens it certainly speaks volumes about how these guys want to play for each other and care for each other in difficult circumstances. We all saw what happened the other night, no one is happy about it and I couldn’t be more prouder of these guys.”
