The Rangers just announced what everybody knew yesterday … that P.A. Parenteau was assigned to Hartford (AHL).
Too bad he wasn’t in uniform for the skills competition last night — he has the winners in both of the Rangers’ slow-motion, practice-breakaway contest (a/k/a shootout) wins this season.
Anyway, apparently, P.A.P. had to clear waivers and he did so at noon today. Kind of gives you an idea what the league thinks of him. I mean, here’s a young guy who was lighting it up in the AHL before he was called up. He was free for the taking by any NHL team today. Nobody took him.
