Rangers recall F Newbury after losing Halpern on waivers to Canadiens

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The New York Rangers have recalled forward Kris Newbury from Connecticut of the AHL after losing veteran centre Jeff Halpern on waivers to the Montreal Canadiens.

The 31-year-old Newbury has one assist and 66 penalty minutes in 19 regular-season games over three seasons for New York. His lone appearance this season with the Rangers was Jan. 24 at Philadelphia.

Newbury has four goals, four assists and 130 penalty minutes in 67 career NHL games over seven seasons with the Rangers, Toronto, and Detroit.

In 62 games this season with Connecticut, Newbury has 18 goals and 38 assists. He is the team leader in assists and points and is tied for first in goals.

Halpern, a 36-year-old checking forward, had one assist and was minus-5 in 30 games for New York.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
