He’ll be remembered for that keen assist against the Hurricanes and for not being Jay Rosehill.   Kimmo Timonen has apparently been demoted to the second power...

Syvret, who was a teammate of Dan Girardi’s with London in the OHL, is essentially the defensive version of Newbury. Both players are solid at the AHL level, but neither can gain solid footing in the NHL. They are your quintessential AAAA players. Newbury was never...

After last night’s win that clinched a playoff berth, the Rangers called up forward Kris Newbury.
