Hellberg was recalled from AHL Hartford on Thursday. Hellberg is up on emergency recall, as their No. 1 goalie Henrik Lundqvist sustained an eye injury in Wednesday night's Game 1 loss against the Penguins. The 25-year-old netminder has little experience in the NHL, appearing in just two games in the last two seasons, but has earned a 30-20-3 record with a 2.40 GAA and a .918 save percentage in 53 appearances with AHL Hartford this season. The duration of Hellberg's stay will probably depend on the severity of Lundqvist's injury--watch for updates on his status soon.

With that in mind, look for Hellberg to serve as the backup to Anttii Raanta, but don't expect Hellberg's stay with the Rangers to last long, as Lundqvist's neck issue doesn't seem to be a long-term concern.
