Steve Zipay at Newsday reports that the one guy from the Marian Gaborik trade we haven't seen, Derek Dorsett, will begin skating this week.
Zipay adds that x-rays on Dorsett's broken clavicle indicate that it's healing well.
"I've got all this built-up energy and not being able to make an impact here is tough. I missed a few weeks with a concussion my first year and had some broken hands, but I've never been out this long."
Zipay adds that Dorsett is a cross between Brandon Prust and Sean Avery, with a reputation for never taking a shift off.
Dorsett is signed till 2015 at $1.5 million per and set career-highs in goals with 12.
…a cross between Avery & Prust? I love this guy already. If he can come even close to that comparison, I think we'll be seeing a ton of Dorsett jerseys walking around MSG real soon.
…not sure what Torts' plan is with Dorsett, but he could give this team a huge boost in the final few games and then in the playoffs. While the Rangers have been playing with more emotion and intensity since the trade I think Dorsett could take that to another level with his physicality and aggressiveness which is still missing. Can't be worse than Asham.
