MSG Networks just announced that former Rangers star and team captain Ryan Callahan will join the Rangers broadcast team for two select games this week. Callahan will appear in studio alongside John Giannone and Steve Valiquette (who will join remotely) for the Rangers upcoming games against the Bruins this Thursday and Saturday. The 13-year NHL veteran will provide expert and insightful analysis throughout the network’s pregame and postgame shows, as well as during intermission coverage each night.
During his storied tenure with the Rangers (’06-’14), Callahan led the team in a number of statistical categories, including goals (132), points (254), game-winning goals (26) and more. In 2011, he was named the 26th captain in franchise history, becoming the team’s first homegrown captain since Brian Leetch. Following his career with the Blueshirts, Callahan helped Tampa Bay advance to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2015. He had a distinguished international playing career as well, competing in two Olympics games and leading the United States to a silver medal at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver.
