Rangers C Dominic Moore to be sidelined 7 to 10 days due to upper body injury

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Rangers centre Dominic Moore will be sidelined for seven to 10 days because of a strained oblique muscle sustained early in a win this week over the New York Islanders.

Moore logged just over 4 minutes of ice time Tuesday and didn't play in the final two periods of New York's 3-2 win. The 33-year-old Moore, who played in the Rangers' first 11 games this season, sat out Thursday night when New York hosted the Buffalo Sabres.

Brandon Mashinter, a healthy scratch in the Rangers' previous three games, replaced Moore in the lineup. Mashinter's only game action this season was a four-minute stint against Philadelphia last week.

The Rangers are already missing top forward Rick Nash (concussion) and captain Ryan Callahan (broken thumb). Callahan took park in the team's morning skate Thursday for the first time since he was injured on Oct. 16. He wore a non-contact jersey, but could return in a week to 10 days.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
