James Sheppard’s reign of terror is over. Tanner Glass will sub back in for James Sheppard tomorrow night, according to AV.
This could obviously be a traumatic time for James Sheppard, let’s hope J.T. Miller can explain the situation delicately to him. This is really J.T.’s first test of leadership.
Pat Leonard reports on the details of Mats Zuccarello’s now completed four year extension:
Pretty team-friendly deal Zucc gave the Rangers. Very happy to have him at those terms.

As I’m sure you’ve seen, the Rangers made a big splash yesterday, acquiring Keith Yandle from the Coyotes and locking Mats Zuccarello up to a four year contract.
Yandle didn’t come cheap: he–along with defenseman Chris Summers and a 2016 4th round pick–cost the Rangers John Moore, Anthony Duclair, a 2016 1st round pick and a 2015 2nd round pick. The Coyotes will be eating half of Yandle’s salary, so for this season and next, Yandle comes at a cap cost of $2.625 million.
