According to Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants, New York Rangers’ forward Ruslan Fedotenko is expected to miss 2-4 weeks with an injury:
Ruslan Fedotenko will miss 2-4 weeks with a second-degree AC sprain in his left shoulder so in addition to calling up Chad Kolarik from Connecticut (AHL), the Rangers have also recalled Brodie Dupont.
So, let’s recap which Blueshirts have been injured this season: Chris Drury, Marian Gaborik, Vinny Prospal, Ryan Callahan, Erik Christensen, Brandon Dubinsky and now Ruslan Fedotenko.
One would figure that with all these injuries, the team should be out of playoff contention. However, the Blueshirts have responded in a big way to the various injuries and find themselves right in the middle of the Eastern Conference playoff pack playing solid hockey.
Hopefully, they will be able to keep it up long enough to stay in playoff contention come April.
