NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It’s been a rough week for the Rangers and their fans.
The Blueshirts were eliminated by the Bruins this past Saturday in the Eastern Conference semifinals, and head coach John Tortorella was shockingly fired on Wednesday.
On Friday, it was revealed that forwards Ryan Callahan and Carl Hagelin underwent surgery to repair torn labrums in their left shoulders.
According to the Rangers’ official website, both players will likely need 4-5 months to recover, potentially costing them the early portion of next season.
Captain Callahan scored 16 goals and dished out 15 assists in 45 games in the lockout-shortened season. Hagelin, playing in just his second season, scored 10 goals and recorded 14 assists in the 48 regular-season games.
Despite the pair’s injuries, they didn’t miss any time in the postseason.
Callahan played in all 12 of the Rangers’ playoff games, amassing five points (two goals and three assists). Hagelin also played in all 12 contests, scoring three goals and contributing three assists.
