The Rangers announced on Friday that they have recalled forward Vinni Lettieri from the team's American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack.
Although the 23-year-old has already skated with the Blueshirts in 14 games this season, there was an opportunity for more ice time for him with the squad in Hartford. The young, Minnesota-bred centerman has made the most of his time there -- tallying five points (three goals, two assists) in four games since being assigned on Nov. 18.
He has recorded 42 points (26 goals, 16 assists) in 68 career AHL games over the last three seasons. Lettieri has suited up in 33 career NHL games for the Blueshirts over parts of the last two season.
