While it doesn't show in the standings, the Rangers have been crushed by injuries this season. Adam Fox
is coming back, but two young stars are going to miss time.
Kakko and Chytil to Both Be Placed on Long-Term Injury Reserve
It was made official by Elliotte Friedman today - Norris-winner Adam Fox
will be coming off injury reserve and will play tomorrow, but unfortunately, first-round picks Kappo Kakko and Filip Chytil
with both be placed on LTIR (meaning they will miss a minimum of four weeks).
A bit more: Adam Fox
expected to be activated from LTIR and play vs DET tomorrow. Filip Chytil
& Kaapo Kakko
headed to LTIR. Chytil is for cap reasons. Kakko hurt last night and will miss time. The good news is that he is expected to return this season.
This is tough news for the team, but they have shown already that they are a wagon with a lot of cup potential. Even with their 1D out, they have put up a fantastic record, with elite goaltending from both Igor Shesterkin
and Jonathan Quick
We will see how the Rangers proceed over the next few months.
