The New York Rangers have lost one of their depth defensemen for the rest of the season following a brutal pectoral injury.
Harpur To Miss The Rest Of The Season
It has just been announced that Ben Harpur
, a depth defenseman for the Rangers who was playing in the AHL earlier this season, will miss the rest of the season after getting pectoral surgery.
A couple Hartford notes:
- Ben Harpur
is out for the season due to pectoral surgery. A hit the #NYR D depth.
- RD Mac Hollowell
has been out with an injury, but coach Steve Smith is hopeful he'll be back this week. He practiced today.
is out for the season due to pectoral surgery. He fell really hard on his shoulder after scoring this goal. Happen on Nov 3rd and didn't play a game since. #NYR
Harpur, 28, has played in parts of 7 seasons in the NHL and has amassed 198 total games. In 2022-23 he played in 42 games with the Rangers. He has yet to play an NHL game this season and this season-ending surgery confirms he will not play one at all.
This is a noticeable loss for the Rangers and we wish Harpur the best on his road to recovery.
