After being named to the Czech National Team for the 2018 World Junior Championships, the Rangers announced that they will loan Filip Chytil to the Czechs for the tournament.

Chytil, the 21st overall pick in the 2017 draft, has five goals and seven assists in just fifteen games for the AHL Wolf Pack. He has been dealing with injuries this season in Hartford, most recently suffering a cervical strain after a dangerous hit from Toronto Marlies’ Andreas Johnsson. Should Chytil be healthy enough to represent his country, it will be a good chance for the Rangers prospect to show off his talents.
Update re Chytil: Sustained cervical strain on hit Sat night. Day to day with Wolf Pack.
