Rangers Send Vinni Lettieri Down To AHL (Presumably For Playing Time)

NHL: New York Rangers at Arizona Coyotes Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Rangers have assigned Vinni Lettieri to the AHL, presumably to allow him to get playing time while the Rangers have their bye week.

The Wolf Pack will play three games during the Rangers’ bye week, so even if Alain Vigneault wants Lettieri back in the lineup (and since he played over Pavel Buchnevich in the loss to the Golden Knights you would have to assume he does) it’s smart to allow him to keep playing hockey.

We’ll have more if anything comes of this.
