New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - The New York Rangers have assigned
goaltender Martin Biron and forward Arron Asham to their American Hockey
League affiliate in Hartford.
The two were placed on waivers Monday and went unclaimed, allowing the Rangers
to send the veterans to the minors.
Biron has appeared in two games during the Rangers' ugly 1-4-0 start and has a
record of 0-1-0 with a 7.61 goals-against average and .763 save percentage. He
had an infamous relief stint for starter Henrik Lundqvist in a 9-2 loss at San
Jose, where he was victimized by Sharks rookie Tomas Hertl's behind-the-back
and between-the-legs breakaway goal late in the contest.
Asham has racked up 14 penalty minutes and is a minus-3 over three games
without a point this season.
The Rangers recalled forward J.T. Miller and goaltender Cam Talbot from
Hartford on Tuesday.
Miller, a first-round pick in the 2011 draft, has two goals and two assists in
27 games with the Rangers over the last two seasons. He had four goals in
three games at Hartford this year.
Talbot is 2-0-1 with a 2.54 GAA and .918 save percentage in three games for
the Wolf Pack.
