Hey everyone. Since our judicial process is currently holding Sam hostage from you, I will step in here quickly to tell you the team has recalled Brandon Dubinsky and David Liffiton.
I don’t have much time, so here’s the release. Note at the bottom that Hossa is due for an MRI today on his sprained MCL.
“New York, March 6, 2007—New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that forward Brandon Dubinsky and defenseman David Liffiton have been recalled from the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League (AHL) on an emergency basis.
Dubinsky, 20, has skated in 58 games with Hartford (AHL) this season, registering 14 goals and 16 assists for 30 points, along with a plus-four rating and 87 penalty minutes. In his first full professional season, the 6-1, 210-pound center is tied for third on the Wolf Pack with 14 goals and is tied for fifth on the team in scoring with 30 points.
Liffiton, 22, has collected one goal and nine assists, along with 150 penalty minutes in 59 games with Hartford (AHL) this season. The 6-2, 210-pound defenseman currently ranks fourth on the Wolf Pack with 150 penalty minutes.
From today’s practice, everyone on the Rangers roster participated other than Sean Avery, Marcel Hossa, Paul Mara, and Fedor Tyutin. Hossa suffered a sprain to the medial collateral ligament in his left knee during last nightÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s game vs. the New York Islanders and will undergo an MRI today to determine the extent of the injury. Tyutin sustained a left MCL sprain on March 1 vs. Pittsburgh and will be sidelined three to four weeks. The teamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s practice schedule for tomorrow is 11:00 AM at the MSG Training Center. The Blueshirts return to action on Thursday, March 8, when they will face off against the Islanders at Nassau Coliseum (7:30 PM).”
