It’s been a little over a month since the New York Rangers cut ties with their former star defenceman after a post-game altercation.
Following an overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins, DeAngelo and Rangers goalie Alexandar Georgiev got into a physical altercation after DeAngelo uttered a sarcastic crack at Georgiev on their way off the ice.
Since then Tony has not stepped foot on a Rangers ice surface, he has been completely removed from the organization.
According to TSN’s Frank Seravalli, it appears that Tony DeAngelo has expressed interest in a loan to the American Hockey League in an effort to get back playing.
Frank Seravalli had this to say:
“Tony DeAngelo has expressed interest in a loan to the AHL, that’s what he let the New York Rangers know that he’d like to get playing again. He’s been skating for the last month to this point on his own, he is willing to accept a loan to any AHL franchise and I believe the Rangers are interested in facilitating that but it would take someone else stepping up to do so because the Rangers have let him know that he is not welcome in Hartford, the ties have been cut with the entire Rangers organization.”
It’s unlcear if any teams have stepped up as of yet to give DeAngelo a place to play or if any teams will. But for now it appears the former Rangers blueliner is trying to get back into the hockey world, starting from the ground floor.
