First the news. Brandon Segal practiced with the team … he did not have to clear waivers to get here, but will need to go through waivers go back down. Tortorella spoke pretty highly of him afterward. He will wear No. 42 in Boston.
Wade Redden cleared waivers and the Rangers have begun the process of buying him out, which could be completed as early as today, but surely will be done by tomorrow or Saturday. Then he’ll be a UFA with this year’s pro-rated salary on the Rangers’ cap.
