Taylor Pyatt

According to Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports, the New York Rangers have put 32-year-old forward Taylor Pyatt on waivers.

Pyatt, who is in the final year of a two-year, $3.1 million contract with the Rangers, has no goals and one assist in 22 games. He hasn’t played since December 12 against Columbus.

Rangers captain Ryan Callahan could be returning to the Rangers lineup soon and this move will help free up the roster spot to activate him. That said, Pyatt has struggled when he’s played this season.

      You still need the muckers & grinders

    I feel bad for this guy. Lost his fiance’ in a car accident a couple years ago. Hopefully he bounces back.

    Boyle a mucker? A grinder? He sucks. Gets his ass pushed around all the time. A good grinder is one that can actually score too.

      I’m not defending Boyle as much as I am D. Moore.

    Sign a veteran minimum with the flames. They need size and he needs a fresh star. Plus that a-hole Burke has always liked this guy.
