According to Larry Brooks in the NY Post, while neither Carl Hagelin or Ryan Callahan are likely to be able to start the season, Callahan is a couple of weeks ahead in his rehab and should be able to join the lineup sooner.
Brooks says that Hagelin will likely be placed on LTIR, thus giving the Rangers more space space for the time being, and won’t be available for the first 10 games and/or 24 days of the season.
Alain Vigneault said yesterday that Callahan is ahead of Hagelin in terms of shooting the puck but that both are coming along in their rehab.
Hagelin admitted on MSG last week that Callahan was likely ahead by a little bit.
