Following the loss of Chris Kreider to a mysterious “upper-body injury” that caused him not to return to last night’s 1-0 victory over the Washington Capitals, the Rangers have officially re-called Vinni Lettieri from the Hartford Wolf Pack.

The re-call isn’t very reassuring that whatever is ailing Kreider is a short-term issue, but an update is expected after practice today.

In the meantime, Lettieri, who has been one of Hartford’s most productive players, could skate in his first NHL contest as early as tomorrow night against the Red Wings. In 31 games with the Wolf Pack this season, Lettieri leads the team in goals (12) and is third in points (21). He is also tied for fifth in goals scored and tenth in points scored by AHL rookies.
