It’s a long way from Sweden to Owen Sound, but New York Rangers prospect Scott Stajcer will make that trip.
Stajcer has been returned to the Owen Sound Attack by the Rangers after the overage goaltender opened the season with New York in the NHL Premiere series in Europe. He didn’t see any game action. The 20-year-old native of Cambridge, ON. impressed in the several weeks spent with the Rangers. He was the only remaining goaltender with the club New York could return to junior.
Stajcer signed a three-year entry level contract with the Rangers in May. He was originally selected in the fifth round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.
He was 10-3-0 in 14 contests last season, recording a 2.91 goals against average and .901 save percentage. Stajcer missed the majority of the 2010-11 season after undergoing hip surgery.
