Braden Schneider registered an assist on Justin Braun's goal in the third period on Tuesday night. He had a +1 rating, two hits, and five penalty minutes due to a fight with Yegor Sharangovich.

Fantasy Impact: Schneider has been quite solid for the Rangers, especially for a rookie. However, he's still only 20 and only has nine points in 32 games. Although he shows promise, leave him on waivers for now.

Justin Braun scored a goal on a one-timer to give the Rangers a 3-1 lead against the New Jersey Devils. He had a +1 rating and two hits as well.

Fantasy Impact: Although Braun is a solid player in real life, much of his value comes from his defensive steadiness. He only has 17 points in 64 games, and being on the bottom pairing, he does not merit fantasy consideration.

Fantasy Impact: Vatrano has four goals in six games since joining the Rangers and is up to 14 goals and 23 points in 55 games played this season.

Adam Huska allowed seven goals in the Rangers' 7-3 loss to the Avalanche on Wednesday. He saved 32-39 shots against in the loss.
