Buchnevich will miss Monday's matchup with San Jose due to back spasms.

Buchnevich has been playing on the Rangers' second line, despite being a rookie. In the season opener, the winger notched his first career point and will now miss his first NHL game due to injury. It is unclear how long the 21-year-old will be sidelined, but in the meantime, Rick Nash will slot in alongside Mika Zibanejad and Chris Kreider for Monday's contest.
