Derek Stepan is expected to return Friday night and center the Rangers' second line in Columbus.

Stepan, who has 27 points in 28 games this season, will play between Chris Kreider and Martin St. Louis. He's one of the Rangers' most important catalysts and is playing between two dynamic wingers, so feel free to activate him if you normally would.

Derek Stepan (upper body) is considered day-to-day.

Derek Stepan sustained an upper-body injury during a 3-0 loss to the Islanders on Tuesday.

Stepan was limited to three shifts in the second period and didn't play at all in the final frame. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault wasn't ready to discuss the severity of the injury on Tuesday and the team didn't reveal the nature of the injury. However, it's believed that Stepan was hurt when he absorbed a slash to his right hand. If he ends up missing any games, J.T. Miller might be asked to take his spot on a line with Martin St. Louis and Chris Kreider.

Derek Stepan picked up a couple of assists on Saturday in a 3-1 win over San Jose.

The Rangers swept through California, winning all three games as they are red-hot of late. Stepan was in a mini-slump as he had gone the previous three games without a point but he got back on track Saturday. Stepan has six goals and 27 points in 27 games this season and should be a must start in most pools.
Jan 11 - 9:50 AM

Derek Stepan notched his third three-point effort of the season in the Rangers' 5-2 win over the Panthers on Wednesday.

His first two helpers were classic hockey assists as he wasn't truly part of the play anymore by the time the goal was being scored, but you won't hear too many people complaining. His third helper however expertly sprung Marty St. Louis for a breakaway that turned into Dominic Moore's dagger of a goal. Stepan now has 25 points in 23 games.

Derek Stepan tallied his third career hat trick to power the Rangers to a 3-1 win over the Devils on Saturday night.

Stepan scored one in each period — shorthanded, on the power play and via the empty net. The 24-year-old center is on a five-game points streak, which has seen his numbers climb to six goals and 22 points in 21 games, so he’s definitely setting himself up for a career season. Martin St. Louis had two assists, while Dan Boyle and Carl Hagelin picked up one apiece. The Rangers have won eight games in a row.

Derek Stepan is getting close to 100 percent as he missed the first month of the season with a fractured fibula.

Stepan will play his second game between Martin St. Louis and Chris Kreider on Sunday as the Rangers top line. "The strength is slowly starting to get back," Stepan said. "I think after game five I finally felt like I could go back in the weight room and I could have that balance of getting in a lift while still playing. I kind of expected it to be this way." Stepan has a goal and six points in seven games thus far and should do better with St. Louis and Kreider on his flank.

Stepan has gotten off to a great start since returning from a fractured fibula with four points in four games. The time he missed might prevent him from reaching the 60-point mark for the first time in his career, but he could still end up recording 50 points over the remainder of the season.
