The NHL's New York Rangers assigned goalie Scott Stajcer to the Florida Everblades from the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League.
Stajcer, 22, made eight appearances with the Wolf Pack this season, posting a 2-2-0 record with a 2.51 GAA. He is a former draft pick of the Rangers, who selected the 6-foot-3 stopper in the fifth round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, 140th overall.
"Scott is a really good young goalie," said Everblades coach Greg Poss. "We've been juggling chainsaws with one goalie all year, so we're happy to have him on board."
Of the 34 games played so far this season, Florida has had only 11 games with more than one netminder on the roster, excepting emergency backup goalies.
Stajcer also has spent time in the ECHL this season, starting eight games for the Greenville Road Warriors. He defended the Blades on Dec. 21, earning the win in net for the Warriors.
On the ice, the Blades (21-13) continue their four-game homestand Friday at 7:30 p.m. when they face the in-state South Division rival Orlando Solar Bears 19-15) at Germain Arena with the series finale Saturday.
