The Rangers have signed Tyler Wall to an entry-level contract.
Wall was selected in the sixth-round of the 2016 draft. The 22-year-old netminder finished his senior season at UMass-Lowell at 18-8-6 with a 2.10 GAA and .931 SV%. After a terrific collegiate career, Wall joins the Rangers, where he is likely headed to the AHL for the foreseeable future.
The Rangers signed Patrick Khodorenko to an entry-level contract.
Khodorenko was an undrafted free agent and finished his senior season at Michigan State University, where he led the team in goals (16) and points (33) in 36 games. Khodorenko's contract begins in 2020-21, and he will join the Hartford Wolf Pack (AHL) immediately on an Amateur Try-Out.
The Rangers signed Justin Richards to an entry-level contract.
Richards is an undrafted free agent centre, who had 14 goals and 11 assists (25 points) in 34 games in his junior year at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. Richards will likely return to University for his senior season and join Hartford (AHL) when he turns pro.
The Rangers signed Austin Rueschhoff to an entry-level contract.
Rueschhoff was an undrafted free agent right winger, who was third on Western Michigan University with 26 points (12G / 14A) in 36 games. Rueschhoff will likely head back to University for his senior season before turning pro.
The Rangers signed Matthew Robertson to a three-year, entry-level contract.
The Rangers selected Robertson in the second-round (No. 49 overall) in 2019 and he finished the 2019-20 campaign as the highest-scoring defenseman on the Edmonton Oil Kings. Robertson had 13 goals and 34 assists (47 points) in 60 WHL games.
The Rangers signed K'Andre Miller to a three-year entry-level contract on March 13th.
Miller was the No.22 overall pic in 2018 and wrapped up his second season at the University of Wisconsin with 18 points (7G / 11A) in 36 games. He started the college season on team suspension, which the Wisconsin State Journal reported was because of academic woes, and he had a disappointing showing in the World Junior Championships, where he had two assists in five games. He'll likely report to Hartford (AHL) if the NHL season resumes or for the start of the 2021 season.
Georgiev will start in Colorado on Wednesday.
Chytil (lower-body) will likely miss Wednesday's game in Colorado.
Chytil left Tuesday's game in Dallas after playing 5:32 TOI and did not return. With Steven Fogarty being recalled from the AHL this morning, it suggests that he will replace Chytil tonight in Colorado.
Shesterkin will start against the Stars on Tuesday.
Shesterkin was yanked after allowing five goals on 23 shots in the Rangers loss to the Devils on Saturday. It was a disastrous return to the crease for Shesterkin, who had his seven-game winning streak snapped in the process. Tonight he faces a Stars team that is on a five-game losing streak (0-3-2) while scoring just 1.40 goals per game.

Shesterkin (ribs) returns to the Rangers net on Saturday.
Shesterkin has missed the last six games with a rib injury he suffered in a car accident in late-February. Prior to getting hurt, Shesterkin won seven in a row while posting a 2.03 GAA and .945 SV%. The red-hot netminder will face the Devils for the second time this year--he was busy in the first meeting, stopping 46 of 49 shots in a 6-3 win.

He comes into Thursday's game at 3-9-1 with a 3.13 GAA and .895 SV% in 12 starts at Madison Square Garden. He'll face a Capitals team that is 1-4-0 while scoring just 1.80 goals per game in their last five road games.
