Read: Could The Rangers Call Up Kris Newbury To Play With Chris Kreider?

Larry Brooks tweeted earlier that he wouldn’t be shocked if the Rangers called up center Kris Newbury who has 55 points in 61 games for the Whale.

Chris Kreider absolutely raved about Newbury during his eight games in Hartford.

Newbury has only played one game with the Rangers this season, but ranks eighth in scoring this season in the AHL.

He played 5:oo on 1/24 against the Flyers and fought Tye McGinn.

THIS SECTION is about Newbury.

The Rangers placed Jeff Halpern on waivers earlier today which could open up a roster spot.
