New York, October 5, 2011 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that defenseman Tim Erixon has been recalled from the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League (AHL), while forward Sean Avery has been assigned to Connecticut. In addition, defenseman Marc Staal has been placed on injured reserve.
Erixon, 20, registered two assists with a plus-three rating and 10 penalty minutes in five preseason contests with the Rangers prior to his assignment to Connecticut on Saturday. He tallied his first points as a Blueshirt with two assists, including one on the power play, at HC Sparta Praha on Friday. Erixon made his first appearance as a Ranger in the team’s preseason opener on September 21 vs. New Jersey at Albany, NY.

Larry Brooks of the NYPost tweeted and TSN is reporting that the New York Rangers will put Sean Avery on waivers at noon today. There is some shock to this as Christensen did little if anything to "win" the final roster spot, but the fact that Avery is off the team should not be all that shocking. Avery had the bigger cap hit and issues with the coaching staff trusting...

The New York Rangers have their opening day lineup set for when they take on the Los Angeles Kings on Friday afternoon in Sweden, and as expected, it doesn’t include Sean Avery, who was reassigned to the AHL’s Connecticut Whale after failing to make the team out of training camp,… read more.
The Rangers announced Monday that Marc Staal will not join the team in Europe for the first two games of the season as he continues to recover from post-concussion syndrome. For those that have been reading me this season and/or just following the news on Staal, this decision comes as little surprise. For now, the Rangers are not placing Staal on injured reserve, though that could...

When Sean Avery came to the Rangers during the 2006–2007 season, the general feeling was that this transaction was the missing piece to a seemingly lifeless team. There was no doubt the Rangers lacked the energy and spark required to make the step to that next level. And despite his questionable history, GM Glen Sather...

via Larry Brooks tweet, BREAKING NEWS FROM STOCKHOLM: RANGERS WILL WAIVE SEAN AVERY, POST HAS LEARNED…
The Rangers defense did not look good against Zug – an understatement. It hasn’t looked particularly good throughout the European tour in all honesty. So much of that has to do with the absence of Marc Staal which will now stretch in to the regular season. It also has to do with Mike Sauer of course. The Rangers’ defense is patched up and will be for a little while longer and...
Player agent Pat Morris chatted with Gord Stellick on HNIC Radio on Sirius on Tuesday, discussing the New York Rangers' decision to place Sean Avery on waivers.
"I think we have better players than Sean Avery - plain and simple," Rangers coach John Tortorella said today. "I can dodge it 10 different ways without trying to run Sean over. I thought he had a good camp."
With some finishing touches being made over the past two days, the New York Rangers have now finalized their roster for the 2011-12 season. Well, maybe I shouldn't say that since there are some uncertainties on defense even though we have yet to drop the puck on the season opener. Allow me to rephrase that last statement; the New York Rangers have finalized their roster for...
The New York Rangers, desperate for defensive help after putting Marc Staal on IR, claimed defenseman Jeff Woywitka off waivers from the Montreal Canadiens. Woywitka, 28, played 63 games with the Dallas Stars last season, putting up 11 points (two goals, nine assists) in those 63 games and a +5 rating. Woywitka then signed as a UFA with the Montreal Canadiens over the summer to...
