This is a potential trust-winning chance for Rangers defenseman

This is a potential trust-winning chance for Rangers defenseman

After being a healthy scratch for six straight games, Tony DeAngelo has returned to the ice with a purpose.

The Rangers defenseman dressed for his fifth straight game Tuesday as they hosted the Canadiens, and was set to take over second-unit power-play duties in Brett Howdena€™s (upper-body injury) absence a€” another chance to increase his minutes while showing he has regained the trust of coach David Quinn.

a€œTonya€™s played well. Tonya€™s done a lot of good things,a€ Quinn said. a€œTonya€™s moved the puck well, I think hea€™s defended well, Ia€™ve liked a lot about his game.a€

DeAngelo sat out the first two games of the year before contributing a pair of assists in his season debut. But two games later, he was back in the press box. An injury to Adam McQuaid, though, afforded DeAngelo another shot, and he has run with it.

a€œI think this guy can be a well-rounded defenseman, not just a guy who can give you a little bit of offense,a€ Quinn said. a€œHea€™s a competitive guy, he can handle bigger players a€˜cause hea€™s quick and he does have a good stick. Hea€™s been very coachable.a€
