Tony DeAngelo Will Miss 3-to-4 Weeks with Sprained Ankle

Recommended Posts

The New York Rangers have have many reasons to want to move on from this season. Not only has it cemented their new goal of rebuilding to contention, which has forced their hands in saying goodbye to long-time players like Rick Nash and Ryan McDonagh, but it's been a year from hell regarding the sheer volume of players who've missed time due to injury.


To date, over the course of this season that still has a dozen games left to complete, the Rangers have seen a staggering sixteen (!) players lose man games to a variety of injuries both short-term and long. Now they can add another body to the pile: Tony DeAngelo.

In and of itself, DeAngelo's loss isn't backbreaking. Not for the Rangers, at least. This Blueshirts squad is not yet mathematically eliminated from playoff contention but they are well behind the eight-ball should they still harbor any unrealistic hopes of qualifying for them.


For DeAngelo, however, the timing couldn't be worse. A healthy scratch at a few points this season, the 22-year-old, who was acquired in the trade that sent Derek Stepan to the Arizona Coyotes last summer, had finally begun to find the kind of consistency the Rangers were hoping to see from him since the start of the season. Thanks to the trades of both Ryan McDonagh and Nick Holden—the latter of whom spent much of the season on the right side of the top pairing—DeAngelo even managed to climb the roster—albiet a skeleton crew—to play beside Brady Skjei over the last few weeks.
