  • 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.

    Rangers' Matt Puempel: Expected to practice Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/17/17) Coach Alain Vigneault said he expects Puempel (concussion) back at practice Wednesday, the New York Daily News reports.

    That's assuming he has no setbacks, but Puempel seems to be coming along well, as he's been skating prior to practice along with the also-concussed Marc Staal. However, with the Rangers getting a raft of their top forwards back from injury -- Rick Nash and Pavel Buchnevich just returned at the end of last week, and Mika Zibanejad will be back Tuesday -- it's questionable how Puempel will fit into the lineup even when he's healthy enough to play.

    Rangers' Matt Puempel: Placed on IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/7/17) Puempel (concussion) has landed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

    Given that Puempel continues to be hampered by concussions with no timetable for his return, his placement on IR is a no-brainer. We figure that Nicklas Jensen will continue to round out the bottom six at left wing with Puempel away from game ice and sure to benefit from the team's upcoming bye.

    Puempel will be out for 4-to-6 weeks with a high ankle sprain, Ian Mendes of TSN reports.Puempel was initially given a week-to-week timetable, but he now appears to be out for the remainder of the regular season at least. If the Senators are able to make the playoffs and make a run, it's possible the winger will re-join the team at some point in late April or early May. Collin Greening figures to slot back into the lineup during his absence.
