Rangers Notes: Updates from Scrimmage


Interesting tidbit from Andrew Gross on today's informal scrimmage regarding Michael Del Zotto:

Del Zotto was wearing a full, clear, plastic visor as a precaution after having nose surgery last week to correct a cartilage problem. In January, Del Zotto recalls lining a player up for a hit along the boards in front of the Rangers’ bench at Madison Square Garden, missing the check but hitting the opponent’s foot and going face-first into the dasher. Del Zotto didn’t think it was broken at the time, though it hurt. It wasn’t until he returned to New York and saw the Rangers’ training staff was the decision made to send him for a CT scan, after which surgery was recommended. The issue is that the cartilage in his nose was pushed to the right. The procedure re-aligned his cartilage properly and also shaved it down a bit.

It could be the nose was effected (or is it "affected"?, I never seem to get that right) by the stench that is Wade Redden?

Also, one other thing from Gross:

Tryouts Alexei Semenov and Ruslan Fedotenko have yet to make an appearance and it’s not clear whether they’ll be at any of the informal skates or just join the team Friday for the start of training camp.

Oh and in case you missed it, our biggest fan Ryan Lambert (he called us "idiots" about a month ago, but I couldn't find the link, we talked about it in the Fan Posts) said today that Ranger fans were "excited" about Garnet Exelby possibly signing with the Rangers. If Ryan had actually read the Fan Post to which he was referring, he probably would have noticed that the comments were hardly what I would refer to as "excited".

Finally, in case you hadn't heard, Rangers single game tickets will go on sale on September 23rd:

The New York Rangers announced today that tickets for the 2010-11 Rangers regular season home games will go on-sale on Thursday, Sept. 23rd, beginning at 10:00 a.m.

Tickets will can be purchased on Ticketmaster via newyorkrangers.com, Ticketmaster charge-by-phone, 866-858-0008 and Ticketmaster outlets.
