And though Craig Oster, one of the winger’s agents at Newport Sports, told The Post the subject is likely to be raised with management within the next few weeks if Zuccarello remains in Hartford under his $67,500 AHL contract, Sather doesn’t seem to have much interest in obliging. “Why would we agree to anything like that?” is how Sather phrased it in an email response to the Post’s inquiry whether the club would set the Hobbit free. “There’s no such agreement.” Zuccarello started this season with the Rangers before being assigned to the Whale after three games, in which he averaged 8:25 of ice time while operating on the club’s fourth line and second power-play...

You just never know what to expect from children. Before the Rangers and Hurricanes played on Veterans Day, 8-year old Rangers fan Joseph Cook took the ice for the ceremonial puck drop, as reported by SI's Hot Clicks. Cook did his duty and dropped the puck before shaking Eric Staal's hand then running off the ice. It's not clear if Ryan Callahan was also expecting a handshake...

Dan’s the man for Blueshirts

Rangers Rediscovering Identity

By Christopher Decker (@HockeyGuy_Chris) It’s been over two years since the New York Rangers went on a six-game winning streak. In fact, the 2009-2010 season saw them win seven in a row. And according to Larry Brooks, this is only the sixth time in the past 17 seasons that the Rangers have put together a six-game winning streak. It’s still very early in the season and it’s...
