 NEW YORK (AP) - The Rangers are adding veteran defenseman Roman Hamrlik to the roster while they wait to find out the severity of Marc Staal's eye injury.
New York claimed the 38-year-old Hamrlik off waivers from the Washington Capitals on Wednesday, one day after Staal was struck in the eye by a deflected puck in the third period of the Rangers' 4-2 win over Philadelphia.
Staal, who wasn't wearing a visor, writhed on the ice in pain before being helped to the dressing room. There was no update to his condition Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.
Hamrlik, the active leader with 1,383 NHL games played, was waived by the Capitals on Tuesday after playing in only four games this season. He is in the final season of a two-year, $7 million contract.
