Rangers coach David Quinn rocked his squad after just one game.
Tony Deangelo will be promoted for Saturday’s rematch against the islanders, Quinn said. The defender imposed a penalty for a third period of detention for violating unsportsmanlike conduct for a double minor in the opening of the Rangers season with 4: 0 on Thursday by the islanders in the garden.
DeAngelo, who signed a two-year, $ 9.6 million contract in October, did not skate with the core training group on Friday and was missed training with the training team. The five-year-old NHL player, who came out last season with 53 points in 68 games, cannot be officially appointed to the taxi team without resigning.
“When we make changes, we can always come back,”
Quinn said last week that Rangers spoke to DeAngelo after the defender caused a stir by deleting his Twitter account and calling the social media platform a “disgrace” after President Trump was finally banned from the site following the Capitol riots in the United States. on January 6th.
Brendan Smith will replace DeAngelo in the squad against the islanders, and striker Phil Di Giuseppe will join Kevin Rooney, Quinn said.
