Claesson (upper body) is no longer listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site. Claesson has missed the Rangers' last nine games due to an upper-body injury, but he should be good to go for Saturday's game against the Blue Jackets. The 25-year-old blueliner has gone scoreless while averaging 15:50 of ice time through four games this campaign.
Claesson (upper body) was on the ice in a non-contact jersey Saturday, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.

Claesson (upper body) will be sidelined for 2-3 weeks due to injury, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports. The club had already placed Claesson on injured reserve, so it shouldn't come as a surprise to see he is facing an extended absence. At minimum, the blueliner figures to sit out the next six contests, but if could be as many as 10 if he needs the full three-week timeframe to recover. With Claesson out of action, Kevin Shattenkirk shouldn't have to worry about being a healthy scratch any more.
Claesson (upper body) was placed on injured reserve (retroactive to Oct. 17), the NHL media site reports.
