Brendan Lemieux Out Indefinitely With Hand Fracture
The New York Rangers will be without forward Brendan Lemieux for the foreseeable future as he fractured his hand during the 5-3 victory vs the Carolina Hurricanes.
David Quinn just said Brendan Lemieux fractured his hand tonight and he will be out a while. No further info and they haven’t had a chance to talk about recalling someone from Hartford yet so soon after the game.— Dan Rosen (@drosennhl) December 28, 2019
With the Rangers heading to Toronto Saturday and then Edmonton for New Years Eve, the team will likely be making a forward recall. There are a number of options the team could consider, but it wouldn’t be surprising if recently assigned forward Phil Di Giuseppe is summoned to return to the team.
This is all the information we have at this moment, so stay tuned for more details as they become available.
