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.
