New Jersey Devils
Newark, NJ - After a tense first preseason game in Albany, the re-match between the long time rival Rangers and Devils in Newark was more about prospects and training camp invitees trying to make an impression, as the Rangers came away with a 5-0 victory led by some familiar faces from the past.
For the second time in four years, the Rangers have brought Petr Nedved into camp on a tryout basis. But unlike his unsuccessful bid to make the team in 2008, he's brought some mates, Czech Mates. Yes, the Rangers have re-united the famed Czech Mates line by also extending training camp invites to Jan Hlavic and Radek Dvorak.
And Glen Sather's decision to bring them back looks to be already paying off, as they combined for three goals and three assists tonight.
"Wait, you really don't think those guys have a chance of making the team do you?," an exasperated John Tortorella explained. "Those three have absolutely no jam to their game. I'd ra...

Although there is a lockout, it sounds like some NHL players aren't as badly off as you would think. Some players are still getting money.
Every NHL front office's worst nightmare during the lockout is that while playing in a league that isn't locking out its players, one of their own could get injured. New York Rangers, come on down! Rick Nash hurt his shoulder and was removed from a game in Switzerland, according to TSN's Darren Dreger, not yet having played a single game in a Rangers sweater. Instead...
Sorry for the late news here. Our personal lives prevented us from a timely update on the Rick Nash injury. In Friday night’s 4-2 loss for HC Davos, the Ranger winger injured his shoulder in the first period. Ironically enough, the injury came from a collision with former Ranger Ilkka Heikkinen. Nash left the game in the first period as a precaution.
An MRI from yesterday showed...
According to the Daily News, New York Rangers forward Carl Hagelin has signed with Södertälje SK of the Swedish Elite League during the current NHL lockout here in North America. He will be headed to Sweden to join the team some time next week.
Hagelin, age 24, is the second of the Rangers to depart to overseas while the lockout drags on in the NHL, as Rick Nash is currently...

Bad luck has befallen the Rangers as recent Rangers acquisition, Rick Nash, has been reportedly injured during an HC Davos game Friday in Switzerland after a collision with the boards. Nash played one more shift before leaving the ice with an apparently shoulder injury. The New York Rangers said in a message to the media that they do not think it is too serious, but no one knows...
In a time where NHL hockey is not being played, a player for the New York Rangers gets hurts while playing overseas.
Unfortunately for the Blueshirts, this player is the newly acquired Rick Nash. According to a Tweet from Darren Dreger of TSN, Nash hurt his shoulder.

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
At this point, Wade Redden has pretty much seen it all.
Redden is locked out just like 700-odd other NHLers and facing nary a paycheck until the labor impasse is resolved.
Except that, well, Redden hasn’t played in the NHL in 2½ years.
Talk about adding insult to injury. If it didn't hurt his pride enough to be turfed...
Lost in the craziness of the Rick Nash shoulder injury yesterday was Katie Strang of ESPN's report that Carl Hagelin has signed with his hometown team, Sodertalje, in Sweden.
...not exactly what Rangers fans want to hear after the Nash incident.
...would love if there was any way the Rangers could talk him and others out of pursuing options overseas.
Rick Nash not injured too seriousy. Shoulder is bruised. He'll be sidelined for about one week.

Larry Brooks at the New York Post adds that the Rangers confirmed that an MRI revealed no damage to Nash's shoulder.
...looks like the Rangers dodged a major bullet.

The NY Rangers worst nightmare has happened. Rick Nash sustained a shoulder injury during the first period of a game today in Europe. In other news, Jim Dolan sent Gary Bettman 100 text messages (that he ignored) while the Commissioner was behind closed doors with NHLPA head Don Fehr. Just kidding about the text messages.
Disturbing news for any team and the news I fear the...

Good news out of Sweden, as touted prospect Jesper Fast (formerly Fasth) is planning on coming over to North America after this season. In an interview with Hockey Sverige (s/t to Adam Rotter of SNY Rangers Blog for finding this), Fast stated that he is happy to be in Sweden for one more year, but plans on coming over to play in North America (either with the Rangers or the Whale...
