MIKE KOSTKA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Rangers’ depth shining in the early going

Forget Mike Kostka. The one-game experiment with the 28-year-old defender notwithstanding, the Rangers’ depth has been extremely impressive so far this season. Derek Stepan and Dan Boyle are two enormous losses that most teams wouldn’t be able to withstand, but New York has weathered the storm remarkably well through seven games. It hasn’t been easy. Poor planning […] The...

Lineup notes: Hunwick back in, Kostka skating as extra

Rangers recall Mike Kostka

It comes with no surprise that the Rangers have recalled defenseman Mike Kostka from the Hartford Wolf Pack. With Dan Boyle out, the Rangers were short one right-handed defenseman, and Kosta was the only logical choice to fill in at the moment (Dylan McIlrath needs top minutes in the AHL).
