Ryan Malone is not sure if he will go to the AHL if he is unclaimed on waivers.

The 34-year-old inked a two-way deal during the off-season but thought he would be spending it in the NHL. Coach Alain Vigneault didn't think his game was good enough at this time. "Everything happens for a reason," Malone said, before adding with a smirk: "Not sure what the reason is yet, but it always seems to work out in the end." Stay tuned.

The New York Rangers placed Ryan Malone on waivers on Sunday.

He hasn't done much in his time with the Rangers, failing to score a point while collecting four PIM in five games. There's an outside chance he might get claimed, but leaguewide demand has likely never been lower for the gritty winger.

Ryan Malone was a healthy scratch for the Rangers on Saturday night.

The veteran is sitting in favor of rookie Anthony Duclair. Malone is pointless in four games, with four penalty minutes. How long he sits could very well be determined by how Duclair looks.

Ryan Malone saw action on the second line Thursday.

Malone played on the fourth line when he made his Rangers debut on Tuesday but coach Alain Vigneault switched up his lines during Thursday's contest and Malone found himself on the wing with Derick Brassard and Mats Zuccarello, while usual linemate Lee Stempniak was moved to a line with Kevin Hayes and Carl Hagelin. Malone could get a boost in fantasy value if he remains on Brassard's wing but take a wait-and-see approach at this time.

Ryan Malone is currently having trouble breaking into the New York Rangers lineup.

The veteran inked a two-way contract but does not want to play in the AHL and would rather be a healthy scratch. "I had a good conversation with Ryan," coach Alain Vigneault said. "I liked his training camp but I’m not sure where he fits in with the team picture right now. We all know a lot of stuff happens in a season. At this time, that’s where he’s situated and we’ll see how it unfolds." He obviously does not deserve to be on your fantasy roster.

Ryan Malone had a tough time of it on Friday.

Malone played his worst game of the pre-season despite getting the tying goal and scoring the shootout winner as the Rangers won 3-2. "There were areas where I can get better," Malone said. "I had a turnover at the blue (line) in the first period. It should have been a simple play. I could have finished maybe a few more hits. Our line was down in the O-zone a lot. We maybe had to drive to the dirty areas a little bit more." Malone is on a two-way contract and could still be sent to the minors to start the season. It's not a good idea to draft him in pools this week.

Ryan Malone scored the tying goal and shootout winner in the Rangers’ 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday.

Malone was the hero tonight, as he scored with under five minutes remaining and the Rangers trailing by a goal. He also scored in the ninth round of the shootout to seal the win for his team. The 34-year-old hasn’t been productive since 2011-12 and that probably won’t change this season. Malone is signed to a two-way contract and isn’t guaranteed a roster spot with the Rangers. Martin St. Louis also scored for New York.

Ryan Malone (hip flexor) joined his teammates for Wednesday's practice.

His goal now is to get some preseason playing time before the start of the regular season. "Obviously, I want to play in the games," Malone said. "I want to be out there as much as possible so the coaches can have eyes on me. (The hip flexor) was nothing really serious, just from skating so much."
