  • Rangers' Matt Puempel: Pens one-year deal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/14/17) Puempel agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Rangers on Wednesday, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.

    Puempel's deal will help New York meet the forward exposure requirements for the Vegas expansion draft, although considering he managed a mere nine points in his 40 appearances this season, it seems unlikely that the 24-year-old will be selected by the Golden Knights. Until the winger can secure regular minutes, he will continue to be a bottom-end fantasy option.

    Rangers' Matt Puempel: Fires three shots in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/6/17) Puempel recorded three shots on goal in Wednesday's loss to Washington.

    It took Puempel 9:53 of ice time to register those three shots. He has suited up in three of the past four games for the Rangers, recording one assist in the process. In his first full-time NHL season, Puempel has registered nine points (six goals, three assists) in 39 total games played -- 26 with New York, 13 with Ottawa. However, all of his points have come with the Rangers while serving as added depth on the Rangers' fourth line.

    Rangers' Matt Puempel: Gets in lineup Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/17/17) Puempel suited up for the first time in five games Thursday, skating 7:58 without a shot or a point in a loss to the Islanders.

    His only marks on the stat sheet were a blocked shot and a minus-1 rating. Puempel's long since recovered from his concussion, but the Rangers have little room for him in the lineup, leaving him in the press box most nights; the only reason he was in Thursday was that Pavel Buchnevich traded places with him. It won't be surprising if Puempel goes back to being a healthy scratch when the Rangers are next in action Sunday versus Washington.

    Rangers' Matt Puempel: Cleared to play, won't Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/22/17) Puempel (concussion) has been cleared to play, but won't suit up for Sunday's showdown in Detroit, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports. Additionally, Puempel is no longer listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

    While Puempel appears destined to watch Sunday's game from the press box, his removal from IR suggests that the team may be ready to bring him back for Monday's game against the Kings after an eight-game absence. However, keep in mind that concussions are notoriously tricky injuries to come back from and the young winger has already suffered two this season, so it's hard to pin down exactly when he'll be ready.

    Rangers' Matt Puempel: Will not join team for Toronto trip

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/18/17) Puempel (concussion) will stay back in New York as the team travels to face the Maple Leafs.

    As expected, Puempel did join the team for practice Wednesday, but will need some more time to fully recover. Additionally, the winger will need to be activated off injured reserve before he can suit back up. Since being claimed off waivers from Ottawa, the 23-year-old has missed more games (11) than he has played in (7). Injury woes aside, Puempel has fared significantly better with the Rangers, as he has tallied five goals and one helper in 13 outings.
