Derek Dorsett is slowly inching toward his return from a broken clavicle after skating with the Rangers on Saturday and taking shots. The right wing, acquired from Columbus along with Derick Brassard, John Moore and a sixth-round draft pick in the trade for Marian Gaborik, was put on injured reserve by the Blue Jackets after sustaining the injury March 7.
A physical forward and four-year veteran, he expects to have an X-Ray next week before taking the next step in his return.
“It’s a little different,” he said. “Back is a little bit sore from shooting yesterday and this morning. On than that, it feels great.”
