Speaking of injured Rangers playing overseas, Mattias Ek at Hockey Expressen reports that Carl Hagelin will not return to Sweden to play for Sodertalje as he will stay in New York to rehab his shoulder injury.
Ek adds that Hagelin's contract will end December 8th.
Hagelin had 5g, 6a in eight games.
...not sure if this is good news or bad news. Good news that he won't be playing in Europe anymore, and obviously the bad news that he's injured so badly he won't be able to play again this season.
...we just have to hope this is more precautionary than anything.
