Rangers' statement on Hagelin suspension

STATEMENT REGARDING CARL HAGELIN SUSPENSION

New York, April 15, 2012- The New York Rangers accept the NHL's three-game suspension

of Carl Hagelin and will not pursue an appeal. However, we are thoroughly perplexed in the

ruling's inconsistency with other supplementary discipline decisions that have been made

throughout this season and during the playoffs. We will have no further comment on this

decision.
