Brady Skjei registered an assist in the Rangers' 5-3 win over the Islanders on Thursday.

Skjei was in danger of being left off the Rangers' opening game roster, but he managed to squeak onto the team. He only logged 14:14 minutes in the opener though, which was significantly less than the Rangers' five other blueliners.

Brady Skjei might be the final player cut from the Rangers' opening game roster.

Nothing has been made official yet, but if the Rangers plan to trim their roster by a defenseman, then it would make sense for it to be Skjei. Unlike all the other blueliners still with the Rangers, Skjei can be sent to the AHL without first clearing waivers. Skjei also didn't have the best of training camps.

Brady Skjei might end up falling short of a roster spot.

Skjei seemed like a pretty good bet to make the squad going into the Rangers' camp, but he's left something to be desired so far. "I haven’t honestly seen him play with the same speed and decision-making that I saw him playing last year," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. "Obviously we’re early in the season. Guys are trying to – everybody’s trying to find their rhythm, young players and older players. Brady is, without a doubt, a skilled young defensemen that we have a lot of confidence in. But like some veteran players he needs to do a little bit more here and hopefully it will start next game." Based on that it seems like Skjei will enter the Rangers' preseason finale on Thursday with something to prove.
Oct 5 - 5:09 AM

Despite Ryan McDonagh's return for Game 3 on Tuesday night against Pittsburgh, rookie Brady Skjei will play.

Skeji, a lefty who normally plays on the left side, will slide over to the right and is expected to play with the captain. Through 36 shifts and averaging just over 18 minutes of work in the first two games of the series, Skjei has posted an assist with four hits, and eight blocks.
Apr 19 - 6:41 PM

Defenseman Brady Skjei picked up his first NHL playoff point in his career.

Skjei was drafted 28th overall in 2012 and the Rangers sent him to the AHL this season where he had 28 points in 68 games with a couple of cups of coffee in the NHL. He has some nice offensive ability that could prove handy for poolies in the next couple of seasons.
Apr 17 - 8:06 AM

Expect Brady Skjei to get his fair share of power play time on the second unit.

Well hey now, that's exciting. Skjei has posted 28 points in 68 games with AHL Hartford in his rookie campaign. The 22-year-old's offensive ability is only beginning to blossom, so he could be a boon for a now depleted power play.
Apr 5 - 6:11 PM

Brady Skjei has been called by the Rangers.

Ryan McDonagh was hurt on Monday against Columbus, which prompted the call up. Skjei has appeared in four games with New York this season, while earning 28 points in 68 games with Hartford of the AHL.

The Rangers don't play again until Saturday, so Skjei could rejoin the team if Marc Staal isn't ready to return.
Mar 9 - 12:44 PM

Brady Skjei will pair with Dan Boyle against the Sabres on Tuesday.

The classic baby faced rookie-grizzled veteran pairing will make the Rangers' third defensive unit. Skjei has done well during his first go at professional hockey, scoring three goals and 23 points for AHL Hartford thus far. The 21-year-old is regarded highly so tonight may be a fine opportunity to see him in action.
Mar 8 - 6:21 PM

Brady Skjei has been summoned from the minors.

He is up with the Rangers on an emergency basis because of injuries to Marc Staal and Dyan McIlrath, who both won't play on Tuesday.
Mar 7 - 5:45 PM

Brady Skjei has been sent to AHL Hartford.

Skjei was on the ice for 22:17 minutes in the Rangers' 5-2 loss to New Jersey on Tuesday. His demotion might be an indication that one or both of Ryan McDonagh (jaw/neck) or Marc Staal (lower body) will be available on Thursday.
Feb 25 - 11:11 AM

Brady Skjei has been summoned from the minors.
