The New York Rangers on Wednesday recalled defenseman Dylan McIlrath from the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League.

The 10th pick in the 2010 NHL Draft, McIlrath is the AHL's leader in penalty minutes (115) and has three goals and four assists.

New York is winless in three straight games and four of its past five. Defenseman Marc Staal is sidelined with a concussion, and forward Ryan Callahan (second-degree MCL sprain) is out for the next 4-6 weeks.
