Hellberg will be rejoining AHL Hartford after a brief stay with the Rangers, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports. Hellberg only saw action once in relief of starter Henrik Lundqvist, allowing two goals on six shots. The 24-year-old netminder has been serviceable for Hartford this season, registering a 8-8-0 record for the Wolfpack. This move means that regular backup Antti Raanta (head) is likely to return following the holiday break.
Hellberg allowed two goals on six shots after entering in the third period of Sunday's loss to the Capitals. Hellberg was recalled Friday after backup Antti Raanta suffered a head injury and was pressed into action after starter Henrik Lundqvist allowed five goals in the opening two frames. It was just the second career appearance for the 24-year-old, but he doesn't figure to get much ice time.
Hellberg was recalled from AHL Hartford on Friday. Hellberg has received his first NHL recall after Antti Raanta suffered a head injury during Thursday's game against Minnesota. Hellberg will likely serve as a backup to Henrik Lundqvist for the duration of his recall, unless Raanta's injury ends up being long term.
Magnus Hellberg was assigned to Hartford of the AHL over the weekend, reports Steve Zipay of Newsday.
Magnus Hellberg inked a one-year contract with the Rangers on Friday, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
