Michael Sauer‘s career has been devastated by a concussion, and the future of his career remains uncertain.
It was reported Tuesday by Katie Strang of ESPN New York that the New York Rangers have not extended Sauer, a pending restricted free agent, a qualifying offer.
According to Strang, Sauer is still feeling with the “residual effects” from the injury.
Sauer, according to Capgeek.com, was at the end of a two-year deal worth $2.5 million and a cap hit of $1.25 million per season.
In 98 career NHL games with the Rangers, Sauer had four goals and 18 points. He was also an impressive plus-28.
