Rangers recall Missiaen to serve as backup goalie

The New York Rangers on Thursday recalled goaltender Jason Missiaen from their American Hockey League team, the Hartford Wolf Pack.

Missiaen will back up Cam Talbot for the Rangers' game Thursday against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Regular goalie Henrik Lundqvist will sit out with an undisclosed injury the team has classified as minor.

Missiaen, 23, is 1-1-0 with a 3.54 goals-against average and .875 save percentage in two AHL games this season. A 2008 fourth-round pick of the Montreal Canadiens (No. 116), Missiaen has yet to play an NHL game in three professional seasons.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
