Mats Zuccarello Sent Down to Connecticut Whale, New York Rangers Recall Kris Newbury

Mats Zuccarello has been struggling early on this season for the New York Rangers and was sent down to the Blueshirt’s AHL affiliate the Connecticut Whale.

The Rangers have called up 29 year-old Kris Newbury; hoping this can spark the offense.  In four games for the Whale, Newbury has four-goals and four-assists and the Rangers are hoping that this will carry over to the big club.

This move could help wake up the offense and more importantly Zuccarello, who was held pointless through three games.
