Rangers send Lettieri to Hartford
Moments ago, the Rangers announced that they have sent forward Vinni Lettieri to Hartford.
Lettieri has had a handful of “cups of coffee” with the big club since joining the organization, but hasn’t been able to last for more than a few weeks at a time. To be fair to the youngster, however, David Quinn seems to have taken a liking to playing with seven defensemen, so keeping him in New York just to be the healthy scratch doesn’t make much sense. Lettieri is a restricted free-agent at season’s end, so it’ll be interesting to see what the Rangers plan to do with the right-handed forward.
