The New York Rangers today sent rookie defenseman Matt Gilroy to Hartford. Chad Johnson, who was called up from Hartford last week to backup Henrik Lundqvist, was also sent down. In his place Matt Zaba was called up.
Although Gilroy is on a one-way contract, his $1.75M cap hit will come off the books while he's in Hartford. The question is, was this move made to help Gilroy find his game? Or, are the Rangers on the brink of making a trade and need some extra cap space to make the deal.
