The Rangers have sent goalie Alex Georgiev to Hartford and have called up goalie Marek Mazanec.
Georgiev has only played once this season and the Wolf Pack have games Friday and Saturday before the Rangers return on Sunday.
Mazanec, 27, is 2-2 this season with a GAA of 3.53 and a save percentage of .859 through four starts.
Rangers coach David Quinn said on Wednesday that sending Georgiev to Hartford was something that he and Jeff Gorton would discuss. (NYR)
Jeff Gorton said before the season, "we will watch his ice time and make sure he is playing games but it was clear to us in camp that he is our number two guy."
He added that the Rangers do have the luxury of sending Georgiev down to Hartford without waivers so if he isn't playing for a stretch in the NHL, he can start for Hartford.
