New York Rangers Assign Zac Jones, Lauri Pajuniemi, and Justin Richards to Hartford Wolf Pack

Zac Jones, Lauri Pajuniemi, and Justin Richards have been assigned to the Hartford Wolf Pack. Jones is the only one of the three who appeared in a game, and in three games the Rangers’ rookie defender had a GF% of 25.06, a CF% of 30.68, and an xGF% of 36.97. It is an extremely small sample, but the move is likely tied to getting Jones ice time in Hartford. The Wolf Pack have games on Friday, Saturday, and Wednesday, and this gives Jones a chance to skate on the top pair with Nils Lundkvist.
