The Rangers have announced that they have recalled defenseman Stu Bickel from the CT Whale.
Bickel has 1g, 3a and is a +4 with 80 penalty penalty minutes in 27 games.
The Rangers needed to recall a defenseman after Steve Eminger separated his shoulder in Phoenix last night.
…will be nice to have Erixon back up with the Rang…wait? What? Bickel?!?!?!?! Why?
…guess the Rangers are looking for a little more snarl on the blueline with Eminger now out. Although, Eminger was the guy Erixon was going to replace on this past road trip so I’m not sure what to think.
…only other reason I can think is that with Eminger expected to be out for awhile Rangers don’t feel confident Erixon is ready for the extended stay.
