DeAngelo recorded a minus-3 rating and picked up the game's lone penalty on a roughing minor in Thursday's 3-0 loss to the Senators. It was an especially forgettable night for DeAngelo, but most of his teammates weren't much better. While the puck-moving blueliner is prone to the occasional mistake in his own zone, he still owns a plus-3 rating even after Thursday's debacle and has earned a regular spot in the lineup for the most part thanks to eight points in 17 games.
DeAngelo scored a goal and tallied an assist Sunday in a 4-3 road loss to the Kings. With Adam McQuaid (lower body) out of the lineup, DeAngelo got the opportunity to play in what was only his third game of the 2018-19 season. The young blueliner now has four points on the year, thanks to Sunday's two-point performance, and will remain in the lineup so long as McQuaid remains unfit to play.
DeAngelo registered two assists in Sunday's 8-5 loss to Carolina. A season ago, DeAngelo played 32 games with the Rangers, tallying eight points in those contests. Sunday's game was his 2018-19 debut and DeAngelo performed admirably, picking up two assists and finishing a plus-1 despite his team having yielded eight goals in defeat.
DeAngelo is suiting up against Carolina on Sunday. DeAngelo is expected to replace forward Vinni Lettieri and actually took line rushes with fourth-liners Vladislav Namestnikov and Brett Howden prior to the game. This will be DeAngelo's 2018-19 season debut.
DeAngelo (ankle) is active for Monday's preseason game against the Devils, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports. DeAngelo missed the final 12 games of last season with this injury. The 22-year-old still has real potential, there's a reason he was drafted 19th overall in 2014, but has had issues staying on the ice. When he has, he's shown that he can at least do some damage on the power play, and he might get the opportunity for the Rangers this year.
