According to Andrew Gross of The Bergin Record , the season is not quite over for a few Rangers. Brandon Dubinsky, Matt Gilroy, Artem Anisimov, and possibly Marc Staal are all expected to play in next month’s World Championships in Germany.

Dubinsky and Gilroy are going to play for Team USA, Anisimov is on the preliminary roster for Team Russia, and Staal is expected, but has yet to be, named on the Team Canada roster.

Other players who might be added to roster later on include Henrik Lundqvist , Marian Gaborik , and Dan Girardi . Ryan Callahan and Vinny Prospal probably would be going, but both are unlikely because of knee injuries.

This doesn’t really do much for the Rangers besides give fans someone to cheer for during the World Championships. Although this can definitely be beneficial to Gilroy who was often scratched down the stretch for the Rangers.
