has been assigned to the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League (AHL).
Bell, 28, registered two shots on goal in 11:26 of ice time while making his Rangers debut on Saturday at Edmonton.
He returns to Connecticut where he has registered one assist and 12 penalty minutes in two games this season.
