Roster News: Rangers Recall Brendan Bell
According to the AHL transactions page the New York Rangers have recalled defenseman Brendan Bell from the Connecticut Whale. There was no corresponding move of a defender being sent down so the Rangers are currently carrying 8 defenders on the roster. This move is likely because of Sauer's injury status and the fact the team is going to Western Canada where it is harder to get a call-up to join the team. Hopefully it is just precautionary and Sauer will be back in the lineup very shortly as he was clearly missed last night, especially on the penalty kill.
