Rangers team president John Davidson told reporters on Monday morning that G Igor Shesterkin and C Pavel Buchnevich were both involved in a car accident in Brooklyn on Sunday night.
Davidson said the airbags deployed properly and both players were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the accident. Shesterkin was driving the car and "apparently a vehicle pulled a U-turn in front of them and there was a collision."
They were both admitted to the New York Presbyterian where Shesterkin was diagnosed with a non-displaced rib fracture. He will be reassessed in a couple weeks.
