Rangers’ injuries offer chance for Julien Gauthier, Greg McKegg to shake off rust

BOSTON — The Rangers’ list of injured players is a tad longer than they want at this time of year, but the injuries have given others who haven’t seen game action in a while a chance to shake off some rust. Andrew Copp (lower-body injury) and Filip Chytil (upper-body injury) were scratched for the 3-1 loss to the Bruins on Saturday after both forwards were hurt in the lopsided win over the Islanders on Thursday. Chytil missed his third game in the last month due to the injury, while Copp was sidelined for the first time since joining the Rangers via...

Rangers' Julien Gauthier: Ends point drought with assist

Gauthier notched an assist in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Stars. With the helper, Gauthier got on the scoresheet for the first time since Jan. 22. He went 15 games without a point, and he was a healthy scratch once in that span. The 24-year-old has seven points, 64 shots on net, 94 hits and a minus-6 rating in 45 outings, but with little offense in a fourth-line role, he's not going to interest many fantasy managers.

Rangers' Julien Gauthier: Stuck on six points

Gauthier had one shot, one blocked shot and one hit in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Blues. Gauthier has an intriguing mix of size and speed, which results in the occasional impressive power move to the net or drawn penalty. Unfortunately for the 24-year-old winger, he hasn't shown much scoring touch at the NHL level - six points in 41 games this season - and Gauthier figures to remain in a bottom-six role barring a scoring spree.

Rangers' Julien Gauthier gets a chance to impress on top line

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Julien Gauthier had no advance warning that he might get moved to the top line. But with two forwards out of the lineup because of injuries and the Rangers trailing entering the third period of Monday’s game against the Los Angeles Kings, coach Gerard Gallant was looking for something, anything, to create some sort of spark.

How Rangers’ Julien Gauthier can fulfill his tantalizing potential

Julien Gauthier is in the midst of what people who work in theater would call their “Big Break.”. After serving as a healthy scratch in nine of the first 12 games this season, Gauthier was drawn into the Rangers’ lineup in each of the last 18 contests before this holiday recess. His hold on his spot may have only been secured by Sammy Blais’ season-ending ACL tear, but Gauthier is now getting his most extended look in the NHL since his rookie campaign in 2019-20.

Rangers' Julien Gauthier: Snaps drought with goal

Gauthier scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Avalanche. Gauthier got the Rangers within a goal with 2:02 left in the third period, but they couldn't find an equalizer.

Julien Gauthier not yet making most of his numerous scoring chances for Rangers

CHICAGO — It’s an old belief in hockey that, as long as you’re getting chances, everything is all right. And Julien Gauthier is getting lots of chances. Entering Tuesday’s game in Chicago, the 6-4, 227-pound winger actually led the Rangers in high-danger scoring chances in five-on-five situations, according to Natural Stat Trick. He had 27 of those, five more than the Rangers’ leading goal scorer, Chris Kreider. The number is even more impressive considering that Gauthier had been in and out of the lineup in the first month of the season, and had played in only 14 of the Rangers’ 23 games before Tuesday.

Is re-signing Julien Gauthier a must for the Rangers?

Amazing how two weeks can change everything. At first, Julien Gauthier was an after thought, the 13F on a team that still needed offense from RW, and basically glossing over him. Now an integral part of a key third line, Gauthier has shown that size, speed, and skill trifecta that made him desirable when the Rangers sent Joey Keane to Carolina for him. On November 1, Gauthier was a spare part. Now as November ends, re-signing Julien Gauthier is a must for the Rangers.

Rangers’ Julien Gauthier Taking Advantage of Opportunity

In the NHL, adversity breeds opportunity. For New York Rangers’ forward Julien Gauthier, that expression could not be more accurate. When Sammy Blais suffered a horrific knee injury that will keep him sidelined for the remainder of the 2021-22 season, head coach Gerard Gallant gave Gauthier the nod to fill his role. Since the injury occurred on Nov. 14 against the New Jersey Devils, the Rangers have gone 4-1, outscoring their opponents 18-11.

Rangers' Julien Gauthier: Two helpers against Boston

Gauthier picked up two assists in Friday's 5-2 win over the Bruins. Both points, including a slick helper on Artemi Panarin's game-winner, came in the third period as the Rangers put the game away. Gauthier has yet to produce numbers in the NHL close to what he did in the AHL or the QMJHL, but the 2016 first-round pick is still only 24 years old and could yet emerge as a consistent contributor for New York.
