Wade Redden at Peace

Veteran defenseman Wade Redden admits to not being overly shocked when the New York Rangers made the move in sending him down to the minors. Even though this former 1995 New York Islanders first round choice might not make it back to the NHL, he is still looking at the bright side which came last Monday when his wife delivered their first child which was a girl. “It’s hard to go home and not smile at her when you’re holding her,” Redden who practised with his new team the Hartford Wolf Pack on Friday said. “It’s a pretty amazing thing.” Following an 11 year tenure with the Ottawa Senators Redden signed a lucrative free agent deal with New York where he has struggled for the last two years. Last year Redden who was a frequent target off boos at Madison Square Gardens scored two goals and 14 points while registering a +8 in 75 games. Coming into camp Redden who has played 994 career games knew that the writing was on the wall in terms of not being with the Rangers this season. “I was not totally shocked when (Rangers’ general manager) Glen (Sather) called me into the office, but I’m obviously disappointed and not sure what’s going to happen from here. When any player is not successful there are obviously repercussions. I don’t feel good about it but there is nothing that I can do about it now and I’ve got to move forward.”
