NYR Stu Bickel clears waivers. Will play for CT today.

…i know Bickel struggled mightily this season, but I'm happy to see he cleared. He's still fairly young and as we've seen this year, toughness is an important part of any line-up. And if you don't remember, he was actually pretty good for the Rangers last season.
…hopefully he can work on his game in Hartford, regain some confidence and turn some heads in camp next season.
…could you imagine a defensive pairing of McIlrath and Bickel in Hartford? That opponent better be ready to throw down.
