RANGERS SEND MESSAGE TO TONY DEANGELO; WILL MISS SATURDAY'S GAME VS ISLANDERS

New York Rangers defenceman Tony DeAngelo will miss Saturday night's game against the New York Islanders after being made a healthy scratch, according to Rick Carpiniello of The Athletic. In the Rangers' opening game of the 2020-21 season, DeAngelo took a holding penalty which made him quite angry. After yelling at the ref and slamming the door to the penalty box, he was assessed an additional two minutes for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Clearly frustrated by his young defenceman, Rangers head coach David Quinn had DeAngelo skate with the Taxi Squad at practice on Friday. But don't expect this to be a long term absence for the blueliner.

Quinn said on Saturday: "It's the right thing to do, and he'll be back in the lineup soon."

DeAngelo, 25, was drafted in the first round, 19th overall by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. He's been traded twice so far in his career, first being dealt to Arizona by Tampa Bay in June of 2016, and then from Arizona to New York a year later, in June of 2017.

In 201 regular season games, he's tallied 105 points (24 G, 81 A), 176 penalty minutes, and is a -14. In 3 career playoff games, he has 1 point (1 A), 16 penalty minutes, and is a -6.

Internationally, DeAngelo has represented the United States once, at the 2015 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championships. In 5 games, he had 3 points (2 G, 1 A), 4 penalty minutes, and was a -1 as the United States finished fifth after losing to Russia in the quarterfinals.
