In the wake of yet another injury loss—this time to backup goaltender Ondrej Pavelec—the Rangers have recalled goaltender Alexandar Georgiev.

The move likely signals a longer-term injury prognosis for Pavelec, who left last night’s game against the Calgary Flames with an apparent knee injury. The Rangers have yet to provide an update on his prognosis but are expected to today.

Georgiev, 21, was signed as a free agent last July after attending the Rangers’ summer prospect camp in 2017.

He is 8-0-1 in his last nine appearances with the surging Wolf Pack while posting a 1.76 GAA and a .948 SV% alongside two shutouts.

He's been fantastic in Hartford and is a large part of the turnaround there. I don't know why we didn't call up Mazanec instead who's worse, but they're not exactly desperate for wins either.



    Perfect training for what he'll see with the Rangers
    Kid seems to be coming into his own at just the right time. Not saying he’s ready to give Hank the boot but it’s nice to know we have this position seemingly covered down on the farm and in our system.

    One group has a future hall of famer on it and the other one doesn't have 1 NHL game between the two lol

    Excited about both Russians though
