RANGERS AGREE TO TERMS WITH GOALTENDER SCOTT STAJCER

New York, May 20, 2011 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has agreed to terms with goaltender Scott Stajcer.

Stajcer, 19, will participate in the 2011 CHL Memorial Cup in Mississauga, Ontario, after capturing the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Championship with the Owen Sound Attack.  Stajcer led the Attack and ranked fourth in the OHL with a career-high, eight playoff wins, posting an 8-4-0 mark with a 2.79 goals against average and a .909 save percentage in 13 postseason contests.  He also ranked fifth in the league in playoff minutes played (688), sixth in saves (321), seventh in goals against average, and eighth in save percentage.  Stajcer posted an 8-1-0 record with a 2.08 goals against average in nine starts to begin the 2011 OHL Playoffs, recording all four victories in both the OHL Western Conference Semifinals against Plymouth and OHL Western Conference Finals against Windsor.

During the regular season, Stajcer posted a 10-3-0 record with a career-best, 2.99 goals against average, a .901 save percentage and one shutout in 14 games with Owen Sound.  Stajcer was named CHL Goaltender of the Week for the week ending October 3, registering a 3-0-0 mark with a 1.00 goals against average, a .972 save percentage and one shutout in three games over the span.  He posted a career-high, eight-game winning streak to begin the season from September 25 at Guelph to October 20 vs. Plymouth, registering a 2.12 goals against average, a .936 save percentage and one shutout over the span.  Stajcer recorded his second career shutout with a 36-save performance on October 2 vs. Kitchener.  He missed 50 games due to a lower body injury suffered on November 20 vs. Mississauga.

The 6-3, 195-pounder has appeared in 110 career OHL contests with Owen Sound, posting a record of 47-44-12 along with a 3.57 goals against average, a .900 save percentage and two shutouts.  In 2009-10, Stajcer established career-highs in games played (55), wins (21), saves (1,620), and total ice time (3,041:54).  His 1,620 saves ranked fifth in the league, while he finished sixth in total ice time.  Stajcer posted his first career shutout with a 36-save performance on December 6, 2009 at Kingston, and recorded a career-high, 49 saves in a 4-3 win at Barrie on December 31, 2009.  He led Owen Sound and ranked 12th in the league with a career-high, .906 save percentage in 2008-09.  Stajcer registered 24 saves in a 5-3 win vs. Niagara while making his OHL debut on November 17, 2007.

The Cambridge, Ontario native was originally the Rangers fifth round choice, 140th overall, in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

  1. I read that the deal is being held up cuz that midget buttman is holding the Atlanta ownership group hostage for a $60 million relocation fee. An article on the hockey news said that in all the relocations over the past 20 yrs, the NHL has never gotten a relocation fee. Buttman is doing this cuz he has the Atlanta ownership group over a barrell. They are desperate to sell and buttman knows it. The article says the sale price is $170 million, but buttman wants $60 million off the top of that. What a fugging weasel. Yet another reason to hate that dwarf midget corksucking piece of carcillo.

    morning ILB and all!!

    I am happy and sad about the thrashers…Sad because I really wanted QC to get the next team, Happy to see another team in Canada though (needs to be a few more).

    Carp
    Buy a goat!!

    My question to everyone is since rapture is tomorrow, do I still worry about approving followers on twitter or do I just “let it ride” so to speak?

  3. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    We need a hockey guy in charge of the NHL!

  4. The Rapture is only for the chosen non-sinners! I highly doubt there are any among us on this board lol

  5. so, we will be left here, CCCP?

    Maverick? Manny? Tony? wicky?

    how much does a goat go for?

    Goodbye, Thrashers. Goodbye, Koko.

    Good afternoon, Sally!

  6. You want a goat? I can get you a goat by….3pm. You don’t want to know, Carp. There are ways.

  7. Can someone explain how technically League is supposed keep balance of the 15 teams East/West Conferences, when making moves like this? (I mean Thrashers).

  8. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    I just saw 3 sleestacks out side my window….I’m getting worried I’m on the wrong rock

    I’ve decided that I’m going to keep approving twitter followers, I mean any of them that are raptured by their god will surely be able to use the internet still right? I mean wouldn’t their god have some sort of wireless set up for them?

    Carp
    After you get the goat, for a small fee I will care for it for you once you depart via rapture tomorrow (the fee is non refundable btw).

  9. You always tip the goat guy. If you don’t tip then you get one of those goats that eats your car.

    carp
    I know a guy that has some real nice ones, good stock, he’ll cut you a deal if you let your friends know to go to him for their goat needs!

  11. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    those poor poor krakatoans!!

  12. yes Carp…we will be left here until the end of the world on December 12, 2012

    so get the mower and a goat!

  13. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    wait I’m confused, it’s not until 2012??

    May 21, 2011: The Rapture
    October 21, 2011: End of the word after 6 Months of pestilence and war post-rapture.

    December 21, 2012: End of the world according to some due to the end of the Mayan Calendar.

  15. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    this is ridiculous, the world ends more times than favre retires!

  16. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    I thought it ended in June of ’94

  17. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    or in November of 2008

  18. Same guy predicted tomorrow’s rapture occurring in 1994. Tomorrow is the revised prediction.

  19. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    or the day LW and I agreed on something here

  20. Maybe tomorrow is the Millennium Bug? Is that what it was called? Or was there another name for it?

    I think if we survive tomorrow, we get until Dec., 2012. Probably not enough time for another Cup.

    If i get raptured — highly unlikely — does anybody want to take over the blog?

  21. “Peter Gibbons: Well see, they wrote all this bank software, and, uh, to save space, they used two digits for the date instead of four. So, like, 98 instead of 1998? Uh, so I go through these thousands of lines of code and, uh… it doesn’t really matter. I uh, I don’t like my job, and, uh, I don’t think I’m gonna go anymore.”

    “If i get raptured—highly unlikely—does anybody want to take over the blog?”

    Thank You for the laughs Carp haha.

  23. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    carp
    I vote ILB, he is the logical choice IMHO!!

  24. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    a few good men version of rapture…

    “Tom, get me god on the phone, we’re surrendering our position here on this rock!”

  25. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody cries!!) on

    isn’t Y2K a zipper? Oh, wait that’s YKK! Never mind!

  26. “New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has agreed to terms with goaltender Scott Stajcer.”

    Good, now we can finally kiss that bum Lundqvist good-bye.

  27. agree with CCCP
    that thrashers owners should sue
    in regards to relocation fee
    unless that’s in a “contract”
    when the group joined the nhl

  28. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody raptures!!) on

    If josh raptures in the woods, is he still 26?

  29. as far as the Rapture goes
    besides getting it wrong with an earlier date
    did you know that
    this guy has $72 million!!!
    stashed away

    hmmmm….funny how he’s so confident of the
    Rapture coming that he’s not even kind enough to give it all away
    to those less fortunate
    so
    if there are any lawyers on the board
    can we sue him for “mental duress”
    on monday?

    what’s MSG? Isn’t that something in Chinese food?

  31. thought it was the video i saw posted somewhere else
    somebody did a 360 of the deconstructed place

    yes, it is interesting and spooky looking.

    still can’t wrap my head around the bridge idea.
    still sounds like it would be more of a problem.

    Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress; Elements:

    1. An act by Defendant amounting to *extreme and outrageous* conduct;
    2. Intent of reckleness;
    3. Causation; and
    4. Severe Emotion Distress (Damage)

    Looks like we could try jpg – the last one is always tough

  33. True Blue Mike on

    I hope Redden, Drury, Wolski, EC and Avery all get raptured. There all such good people and they really deserve it. Did i mention Sidney Crosby as well?

  34. oh Manny!!!!
    could be fun fun fun
    besides
    it would give us something to
    do on the days between
    draft day
    july 1st ufa signings
    and the first day of camp

  35. MannyFried? on

    We should probably hire outside counsel though. I suggest either Barry Zuckercorn or Bob Loblaw.

  36. MannyFried? on

    Per Waseka: Derek Boogaard’s death ruled an accident. Mix of alcohol and oxycondone (painkiller) toxicity.

  37. MannyFried? on

    Thanks Tony!

    “Were those promises made explicitly?”
    “Oh you want me to be explicit?”

  38. MannyFried? on

    5-6PM Local time Tony. It’s only the beginning of the end. You still have 6 Months.

  39. sigh… accidental death like that is horrible

    though, alcohol and oxycondone never did bad for me :)

    not yet…i guess.

  40. Sad about the Boogey man. The biggest and baddest NHLers couldn’t do him in, but a mistake with the bad stuff did. Sucks.

  41. Linda should be here today. She’d appreciate the new levels of gibberish (jibberish).

    Sure does, Joe.

  42. i took a course in college 15 years ago and the course was licit and illicit drugs.

    i got an A prob my only A in college.

    what i learned is the MOST DEADLY COMBINATION IN THE WORLD IS ALCOHOL AND OXYCODONE.

    terrible news

  43. didn’t know oxy was around that long ago
    or
    was it rarely prescribed at that time
    and not as popular as it is now?

  44. And This One Will Last A Lifetime on

    I have heard that there has been a long standing hand shake agreement between the NHL and the Detroit Red Wings that the next time a team gets shifted from the Western to the Eastern Conference it will be them. So even if it made more sense for Columbus or Nashville , it will be Detroit that gets moved over. They are an EST city and their fans get screwed with all those PCT games. If Atlanta goes to Winnipeg, then I think Detroit comes into the Eastern Conference because they really want to and it has been promised to them from the past.
    just sayin…

  45. eric

    you don’t have to go to college to know that painkillers and booze don’t mix well together!

  46. And This One Will Last A Lifetime on

    eric…we need to get better and not be a bubble team so that we don’t have to worry about having another playoff spot gone to Detroit.

  47. MannyFried? on

    Look if you take a medication daily and probably suffer the pain that he was suffering you start mixing those things. Hollywood actors do it and they don’t even get slammed into a wall 82+ days a year. Maybe he was having trouble sleeping. Even if you know it’s a bad idea you assume that you have the intelligence to not go overboard.

  48. wicky(grating PIBG)© (The game’s not over until somebody raptures!!) on

    So sad regardless, I hope the whole team shows up tomorrow!

  49. cccp

    i know you dont need to go to college to now that i was just stating that was one thing i clearly remember

    no alcohol and oxycodone

  50. Some of the most addictive drugs are pharmaceutical pain killers, especially OxyContin (it’s a derivitive of heroin).

    Forget mixing with alcohol…they are dangerous alone…when you take those you are playing with fire…

  51. Boom Boom Bathgate on

    Bettman denies the move is a done deal = the move is a done deal. Bettman could not tell the truth if his life depended on it, because he would rather lie and die than tell the truth about something and continue to live.

  52. Boom Boom Bathgate on

    If we had a choice between the world ending tomorrow, or lasting another 20 years with Bettman as NHL Commissioner, it would be a coin flip.
