Yesterday, I posted that Mats Zuccarello's KHL season ended and that it was likely the Rangers would be reaching out to him shortly.
Well, last night Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record confirmed that Glen Sather has in fact spoken to Zuccarello's agent about a possible return to the Blueshirts...

Chris Kreider scored his third and fourth goals in three games since being assigned to the CT Whale, but unfortunately it wasn't enough as the Rangers AHL affiliate lost to Portland 4-3 in a shootout last night.
Kreider's first tally of the night was with the extra man, making three of the four goals he's scored on the power play. Kreider did miss his shootout attempt...
22-year old LW Tye McGinn made his debut with the Philadelphia Flyers a little over a week ago. Only a few days later he found himself in the middle of a scrap with then Toronto Maple Leaf Mike Brown. Brown, a seasoned veteran of the NHL fighting circuit, pounded McGinn and ended up fracturing his orbital bone.
The fight took place on February 25, but a photo surfaced today showing...
Rangers center Brad Richards is sitting out against the Philadelphia Flyers two nights after absorbing a hard hit from behind that led to a suspension for Buffalo's Patrick Kaleta.
Richards, who played in New York's 20 games this season before Tuesday night, returned to the ice Sunday after being shaken up in the third period of the Rangers' 3-2 shootout victory over...
The Rangers are adding veteran defenseman Roman Hamrlik to the roster while they wait to find out the severity of Marc Staal's eye injury.
New York claimed the 38-year-old Hamrlik off waivers from the Washington Capitals on Wednesday, one day after Staal was struck in the eye by a deflected puck in the third period of the Rangers' 4-2 win over Philadelphia.
Staal, who wasn...
According to multiple sources, Mats Zuccarello's KHL team Metallurg was eliminated from the playoffs today, meaning he is available for the Rangers to sign.
It has been reported that Glen Sather is interested in bringing back Zuccarello who is still Rangers property and would not have to clear waivers before signing with the team.
Zuccarello's agents were in New York...

The Rangers’ American League affiliate, the Connecticut Whale were able to grab four of four possible points this weekend and sweep the Islanders’ affiliate, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, only allowing Bridgeport one point. Connecticut was able to score a combined 10 goals in just 2 games; 5 of which came on the power play. It [...]
The Rangers extended their win streak to two in a wild, 3-2 shootout win over the Sabres but the end result has mostly been lost in the rightful consternation over the hit by Patrick Kaleta to Brad Richards early in the third period.
Trailing 1-0, 3:28 into the third, the tone of the game changed following the hit by Kaleta. For all those who have argued...

I know, I know.
Whether it be his intermission speech's that we all got to witness on HBO's 24/7 special, him challenging Pittsburgh Penguins head coach Dan Byslma late in the third period of a game last season, his use of timeouts or just his overall aura; most Flyers fans have a tremendous amount of respect for Peter Laviolette.
