Shattenkirk won't play Monday against the Devils, but is expected to play back-to-back games Wednesday and Thursday, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Shattenkirk missed the end of last season with a knee issue, so it makes sense that the Rangers want to be careful with him this preseason. The 29-year-old will be expected to quarterback the Rangers' power play this year, so his health is going to be paramount for the team, and also for fantasy owners.

Shattenkirk is projected to play in Saturday's preseason contest against the Islanders, according to the Rangers' official twitter.

EDGE Analysis

This is great news for prospective Shattenkirk owners, as it means he's fully recovered from the meniscus tear that cut his first season on Broadway short. A healthy Shattenkirk can be expected to make major contributions on the power play, having recorded 25 or more points with the extra man in four consecutive seasons prior to his 2017-18 campaign, which was shortened by the aforementioned knee injury.

Shattenkirk was back on the ice Thursday and should be completely ready to go by training camp, Jon Lane of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Shattenkirk's first season with his hometown team was a disappointing one, as a meniscus tear in his left knee ended the offensive-minded blueliner's campaign early. He had surgery to repair the injury Jan. 22 and appears to be well on his way to a full recovery from that procedure. Having a healthy Shattenkirk in 2018-19 would be a major boon to both fantasy owners and the young Rangers squad around him, so hopefully he can avoid any setbacks moving forward.

Shattenkirk (knee) remains on schedule in his rehab and he'll resume skating in approximately one month, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The New York native last played Jan. 18 -- missing the final 36 games -- but there's been nothing to suggest that the star defenseman will get off to a late start in training camp. Shattenkirk recorded 23 points (five goals, 18 assists) over 46 contests as part of his debut season in The Big Apple, and with any luck in the health department, he could revert to being one of the premier fantasy options at the blue-line position.

Shattenkirk (knee) should be healthy enough to take part in next season's training camp.

EDGE Analysis

This comes as positive news for Shattenkirk, who sat out the final 36 games of the season due to injury. While the Boston University product didn't live up to his $6.65 million cap hit, he didn't have a bad season either, logging 23 points in 46 games. Despite his defensive deficiencies, as long as Shattenkirk continues to skate upwards of three minutes per game on the power play, he'll be a useful player to fantasy owners.

Shattenkirk (knee) has been ruled out for the rest of the season.

EDGE Analysis

Shattenkirk, whose hometown is located 20-some miles away from Madison Square Garden, mercilessly puts an end to his debut campaign with the Rangers. The star blueliner finishes with five goals, 18 assists -- including 12 power-play points -- through 46 games. The low volume of games makes it look like Shattenkirk had a poor season, but his 0.5 PPG output actually trumped his career average. Look for Shattenkirk to come at a bargain price in fantasy drafts this fall. He's under contract with New York until the 2020-11 campaign, and a modified no-trade, no-move clause was included in the terms of the deal.

Shattenkirk (knee) skated and he "feels good" according to head coach Alain Vigneault, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

The last update we got on Shattenkirk was that he had suffered a setback that would keep him from being able to skate for a few days. As such, the fact he's back to skating and reportedly feeling good is an encouraging sign. The 29-year-old is expected to return before the season ends, but time is running out.

Per coach Alain Vigneault, Shattenkirk has suffered a minor setback which will prevent him from skating "for a few days."

EDGE Analysis

Shattenkirk is still expected to return this season, but time is running out with only 12 games remaining on New York's schedule. Returning to practice with his teammates will mark the next big step in the 29-year-old blueliner's recovery, so the Rangers should release another update on Shattenkirk's status once that occurs.

Shattenkirk (knee) has joined the team for its two-game road trip beginning in Tampa Bay on Thursday, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Alain Vigneault indicated Tuesday that Shattenkirk could be back in the next couple of weeks, suggesting that he's unlikely to rejoin the lineup despite traveling. However, it's certainly an encouraging sign that he's feeling good enough to travel with the club. More information on the blueliner should surface as he draws closer to a return, but it's best to consider him out until he gets a full practice or two under his belt.

Shattenkirk (knee) took to the ice Tuesday for the first time since sustaining his injury, with Rangers coach Alain Vigneault noting that the defenseman could be back in a couple of weeks, NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The power-play quarterback has missed the past 20 games, but with the Blueshirts already out of the playoff race, there's likely no urgency in getting him back into the fold -- you know, outside of the fact that his presence helps with ticket sales and that he's costing the Rangers a cool $6.65 million per season. Having torn his meniscus, Shattenkirk had to pause his debut campaign with New York after notching 23 points (five goals, 18 assists) to supplement 12 power-play points over 46 appearances.
