New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has re-assigned goaltender Vitali Yeremeyev and defenseman Bert Robertsson to the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League (AHL).
Yeremeyev, 25, has dressed in one match with the Rangers this season, posting a 0-1 record with a 1.82 goals-against average and .929 save percentage. The Ust-Kamenogorsk, Russia native made his NHL debut on Wednesday, December 27th, in a 4-3 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes and turned aside 13 of 14 shots faced in relief of starter Kirk McLean.
The 5'10" 167-pounder was drafted by the New York Rangers in the 9th round (209TH overall) in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft.
Robertsson, 26, has accumulated four penalty minutes in two matches with the Rangers this season.
The 6'3" 210-pound native of Sodertalje, Sweden was acquired from the Columbus Blue Jackets on November 9 in exchange for goaltender Jean-Francois Labbe.
