Rangers Make Roster Moves

The Rangers made two roster moves today, including acquiring Connor Brickley from the Nashville Predators.

Cole Schneider, who is headed to the Milwaukee Admirals, the Predators’ AHL affiliate, never got into a game for the Rangers in his 1.5 years with the organization. Schneider registered 75 points (29G, 46A) in 112 games with the Wolf Pack.

The other transaction the Rangers made was calling up defenseman Ryan Lindgren from the Wolf Pack.

Lindgren was a key piece in the Rick Nash trade at last year’s trade deadline, as the young defenseman was the lone prospect included in the deal.

Lindgren is a big, physical, defensive defenseman that can dish out big hits and is a strong skater. He has good NHL upside, but limited offensive potential and in fantasy hockey holds more value in deeper leagues with multi-cat scoring such as hits and blocks.

The assumption is that Lindgren is being brought up to the big club because the injury to Fredrik Claesson is more severe than initially expected. And as David Quinn has said in the past, he prefers playing his defensemen on their strong sides.
