The New York Rangers have recalled goaltender Alexandar Georgiev from the Hartford Wolf Pack.
The transaction was made because Ondrej Pavelec left Friday’s 4-3 victory over the Calgary Flames after the first period with a knee injury.
Georgiev made 43 saves in a 4-3 shootout victory over the Syracuse Crunch on Friday evening, and improved his stat line to 12-11-6 with a 2.97 GAA and .908 save percentage on the season.
#NYR recall Alex Georgiev from Hartford (AHL). We should know more about the severity of Pavelec’s knee injury later. Rangers on ice in about 30 minutes.— Matt Calamia (@MattCalamia) February 10, 2018
More on Pavelec’s injury should be known after practice, but he isn’t expected to join the Rangers on their upcoming road trip.
