On Saturday night the New York Rangers announced that Tim Erixon and Kris Newbury were being sent down to the Connecticut Whale (AHL) and the speculation began as to who, if anyone, would be coming to the Rangers.  Most of the speculation surrounded Mats Zuccarello, John Mitchell and prospect Carl Hagelin, but none of those appear to be the option.  While there is no official announcement as of yet, Rangers prospect Carl Hagelin announced via twitter that his roomate Andre Deveaux is heading to New York.

Deveaux is a good fit for a fourth line type role to play limited minutes, bring some toughness to the team and add another player capable of dropping the gloves.  Deveaux has racked up huge penalty minute numbers in his AHL career but has also shown some offense in recent seasons.  He currently has four goals, two assists and 23 penalty minutes in 9 games. 

For those who wanted a bigger name or someone with more offensive upside realize that the Rangers had some good work offensively from Wolski-Stepan-Gaborik and Dubinsky-Richards-Callahan lines today and Tortorella doesn't like to touch the Boyle line as his third line.  Taking those as the top 9 there is no reason to call up a legit prospect who should be getting more minutes in an offensive role.
