Rangers Roundup: Hank hurt, Zucc Juke, Prospects Tournament Update and more
Some news and notes about the Blueshirts on this Labor Day. Enjoy.
Shot ‘Ribs’ Hank
Nothing can set panic into the hearts of Rangers fans worldwide than the word injury associated with Henrik Lundqvist. During a Team Sweden practice, Hank took a shot to the ribs in an area where his equipment shifted out of place. According to an MRI and the King per Larry Brooks…all is fine.
“A few days ago I took a puck right to the rib cage when my equipment somehow moved,” Lundqvist said in an email. “I did have some discomfort, and it’s sore and stiff and probably will be for a while, but I’m OK.”
Zuccarello Scores For Norway
Mats Zuccarello juked his way for a huge goal in Norway’s 2-1 win over France to secure his home county’s spot in the 2018 Winter Olympics. Here’s the gorgeous tally.

These are the NYR prospects participating. Note, they are in alphabetical order by position…so don’t panic that Jimmy Vesey is at the bottom for LWs. And I wouldn’t read to much into Pavel Buchnevich at center either.
