Claesson (shoulder) resumed skating Thursday and his return timetable is set at 7-to-10 days.

Claesson, whose career began in Ottawa, has averaged a mere 0.18 point per game over parts of four seasons. However, he's still taken 54.3 percent of his 5-on-5 shifts in the offensive zone this season. A lot can happen to the makeup of the Rangers roster by the time he's ready to return, but we can't envision a scenario in which he'd suddenly evolve into a fantasy-friendly defenseman.
