Rangers' Vitali Kravtsov Could Be Set for AHL Stint Amid Lineup Absences


Recommended Posts


Gallant’s reticence to go with Kravtsov in games with outsized November importance with the winger having played just two games this month and just 52:28 of ice time on the season is understandable. But that is why the Rangers need to get him into games and, essentially, into the season. 


To that end, it is believed that there have been constructive discussions between Blueshirts management and Kravtsov’s camp regarding a 14-day conditioning assignment to AHL Wolf Pack. If the 23-year-old does indeed sit out Monday’s contest, it is entirely possible that assignment could come before the Rangers travel to Ottawa for a match on Wednesday. 


Under that scenario, Kravtsov would be in line to play five games in eight days for Hartford beginning on Dec. 3. That would give the winger — who has one assist in six games of limited action in which he sustained three different injuries — his best chance of success on Broadway. It would also provide Gallant with more confidence with which to use Kravtsov.

Not sure I get wanting Wahlstrom now. He’s fine. Hughes’ other USNTDP teammates have surpassed him.

Why? Considering who we wound up with instead, I'd rather have Wahlstrom. lol

Bingo. At this point, he looks like he will be the more useful NHLer with a longer career.
