Pyatt Joins Team in Tampa; Will Miller Be Assigned to Hartford?

Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record reports that Taylor Pyatt joined the Rangers in Tampa today.

Pyatt, who has missed seven games with a concussion, was skating on his own in New York.

Steve Zipay at Newsday reports that although Pyatt has joined the team, he's not ready to play quite yet.

…with JT Miller a healthy scratch the last two games and Pouliot having a decent game last night, you have to figure, even with Pyatt not ready just yet, the former Rangers 2011 first round pick will be headed to Hartford either tonight or tomorrow.

…i've been saying all week that I expect Pyatt to be re-inserted into the lineup as soon as he's medically cleared, but with the Rangers on a bit of a nice run, AV might decide to hold off until his team loses.

…wonder how Pyatt's return will change up the lines, which, except the 3rd line, have had some pretty good chemistry. While I'm a big fan of the fourth line, maybe the move will be to put Dorsett on the third line for Pouliot and then add Pyatt to the fourth line.
