Rangers recall Chris Mueller from Hartford
The New York Rangers President and General Manager recently announced that forward Chris Mueller was recalled from the Hartford Wolf Pack of the AHL. The Rangers also assigned JT Miller and Jesper Fast to Hartford.
Chris Mueller had a good game in Hartford’s season opener on October 12 against the Syracuse Crunch. Mueller scored a goal on two shots, and had a plus-one rating.
Mueller also posted solid stats for the Rangers in the preseason. In four games, Mueller tallied three points, which came on a goal and two assists, had a plus-one rating, and recorded five shots on goal.
Fast and Miller both struggled in the games that they played in the regular season. Fast recorded three shots on goal and posted a minus-one rating. Miller registered seven shots on goal with a minus-four rating. He also had three blocked shots as well as four hits, but did not produce like he was expected to in a bigger role.
Mueller, 28, is primarily a right wing, and will likely serve as a backup to some of New York’s other wingers. Mueller will see some ice time, but it’s not clear as of now where Vigneault will use him.
