New York Rangers center Derek Stepan remains day-to-day with a foot contusion sustained while blocking a shot. He was held off the ice Monday prior to the Rangers' preseason opener against the New Jersey Devils at Madison Square Garden.

"It's a day-to-day thing, nothing serious," coach Alain Vigneault told the Rangers website.

X-rays given to Stepan on Saturday were negative, according to northjersey.com.

Stepan, 24, had career-highs last season in assists (40), points (57), shots on goal (199), power-play goals (five), power-play assists (13) and power-play points (18) in 82 games. His 15 points in the Stanley Cup Playoffs were tied for second on the team and included a postseason career-high five-game point streak.

The Rangers begin the regular season Oct. 9 against the St. Louis Blues at Scottrade Center.
