As Kevin wrote earlier this morning, New York Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto left last night's game with an apparent injury and was seen limping after the game.
While no update has been given by the team regarding Del Zotto's status, the team has made a transaction today:
#NYR have recalled Steve Eminger from the @ctwhale likely due to Del Zotto injury
— Pat Leonard (@NYDNRangers) February 22, 2013
Keep in mind Eminger was sent down to the AHL back on February 13 for a two-week conditioning stint and was due to return soon.
- Safe to assume it's an undisclosed injury?
- The team can ill afford to be without one of their top-four defenseman for any length of time. Eminger isn't the greatest option, but will be serviceable if he's pressed into action.
