New York Rangers players Igor Shesterkin and Pavel Buchnevich were injured in a car accident, Sunday night. Rangers president John Davidson announced the news Monday morning after the Rangers signed Chris Kreider to a seven-year extension.
The 24-year-old Russians were driving in Brooklyn when they collided with another car. Shesterkin, the driver, fractured a rib in the accident while Buchnevich, the passenger, is day-to-day. He did not suffer any “significant injuries.”
