Rangers camp: Sauer testing himself

by Dan Rosen / NHL.com
GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Rangers defenseman Michael Sauer waited until both sessions of on-ice testing were complete to finally get on the ice to test out his injured knee. Sauer, who worked with assistant coach Mike Sullivan, even got to skate with pucks, which weren't supposed to show up until Sunday's scrimmages.

Sauer, who has tendinitis in his knee, is not doing any of the on-ice testing, but if he feels good enough after he skates Saturday, Rangers coach John Tortorella said he will participate in the camp's first scrimmage Sunday.

"We didn't want him to jump into the type of skate like that today when he hasn't skated a whole bunch," Tortorella said. "We'll get him tested sooner or later, but we'll see if he can get into the practices and scrimmages tomorrow."
