Haley out indefinitely for Rangers with core muscle injury

Forward will have surgery, has one goal, 50 penalty minutes this season @NHLdotcom

Micheal Haley will have surgery for a core muscle injury and will be out indefinitely for the New York Rangers. 

The forward, who hasn't played since a 4-2 loss to the New York Islanders on Jan. 21, has one goal and 50 penalty minutes in 22 games this season.

It is the same injury that Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby had earlier this season. Crosby missed 28 games.

The Rangers (26-23-4), who host the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday (6 p.m. ET; ESPN+, MSG+, FS-W, NHL.TV), are nine points behind the Carolina Hurricanes for the second wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Eastern Conference.
