Newbury returned to AHL

By Katie Strang

Kris Newbury has been returned to the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League, the Rangers announced Monday afternoon.

The 29-year-old forward was summoned in advance of Saturday's game in Montreal -- a 4-1 Rangers loss -- after winger Ruslan Fedotenko experienced back spasms in the team's 3-0 win over the Maple Leafs Friday.

Newbury's return is a good indication that either Fedotenko or Brandon Dubinsky or both are available to play Tuesday when the Rangers host the Predators at Madison Square Garden.
