New York Rangers forward Sammy Blais out for season with ACL tear

The New York Rangers will be without Sammy Blais for the remainder of the season after tearing the ACL, the New York Post reported Tuesday.

Larry Brooks of the New York Post first announced that Blais would be out for the year, before his Post colleague Mollie Walker reported it was an ACL tear.

The Rangers winger was chasing a puck in the corner and his skate was cut Sunday night against the New Jersey Devils by defenseman PK Subban. Blais slammed into the boards, falling onto the ice and squeezing his leg.

Blais, 25, is in his first season with the Rangers after being acquired alongside a 2022 second-round pick for Pavel Buchnevich. In 14 games this year, Blais has collected four assists.
