Rangers coach hit by stick

Friday, 10.24.2008 / 9:20 PM / News

Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -New York Rangers coach Tom Renney was taken to the dressing room after being hit on the head by a stick in the second period against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday night.

The team announced midway through the third that Renney was still in the arena and "is doing OK" but would not return.

Two Rangers hit Columbus defenseman Rostislav Klesla from behind and an errant stick struck Renney near the 11:30 mark of the second.

He left the bench area and did not return the rest of the period.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
