Optional Practice Notes (Updated)

Update, 1:36 p.m.:
Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants reports that White was not at optional practice (healthy scratches usually attend). Also no stall set up for him in locker room or uniform set out.

Update, 1:29 p.m.:
Michael Del Zotto, who feels his benching is part of the learning experience, said cortizone shot hurt but allowed him to skate this morning, while Vinny Prospal says left knee is still weaker than right and is leaving decision on return up to trainers.

Update, 12:43 p.m.:
Baldwin move does not mean White will be sent down as there is no roster limit until after clear day and Baldwin is a defenseman while White is obviously a forward.

Update, 12:28 p.m.:
White has officially cleared waivers.

Update, 12:25 p.m.:
CT Whale’s Lee Baldwin has been assigned to ECHL Greenville, likely making room for White.

Original Post:
There were 11 players on the ice this morning for the Rangers optional practice in prep for tonight’s game at The Rock against the Devils.

One player who was not on the ice is Todd White who may be on his way to Connecticut.

Michael Del Zotto received a cortisone shot this morning for his ailing groin, while Henrik Lundqvist gets the start tonight.

…awesome job as always by Jesse Spector of the Daily News tweeting out all this information.
