Rangers News: Alexander Frolov Out For The Season, Kris Newbury Called Up

In a strange turn of events, the New York Rangers have lost Alexander Frolov for the rest of the season. The Russian winger tore his ACL in the Rangers game against the Blues. 

Frolov signed a one-year $3 million contract this offseason. 

Frolov has been a huge disappointment with seven goals and nine assists for 16 points in 43 games. He hasn't brought any chemistry with Marian Gaborik, and no matter where he is paired his offense suffers. Basically, he's been a problem all year for the Rangers. 

Normally this injury would not have been a big blow to the team, but unfortunately the Rangers are still missing Ryan Callahan, so the injury does cause some problems. As you know, Mats Zuccarello is up to replace Callahan. And now the Rangers have called up Kris Newbury to take Frolov's place. 

It will be interesting to see where the Rangers go from here. Obviously the Rangers might look into a trade to replace him, but that has yet to be seen. Honestly, there's not much offense to replace anyway. We'll keep you up to date with everything that goes on from here.
