Filip Chytil Leaves New York Amidst Scary Health Situation

In early November, New York Rangers forward Filip Chytil found himself on the injured reserve list due to a concussion, and updates on his condition have been less than optimistic. Recent reports from the New York Post reveal that Chytil has returned to his home country, Czechia, to undergo a 'reset' as part of the next phase of his recovery. He continues to engage in solo skating sessions under the guidance of his offseason trainer and skills coach. Chytil's return home is scheduled for Friday night.

«The decision, reached mutually by Chytil's camp and team hierarchy, will allow No. 72 to experience the next phase of his recovery at home in a familiar environment where he will be surrounded by friends and family,» writes Larry Brooks in the Post.

The concussion is believed to have occurred on November 2nd during a game against the Carolina Hurricanes colliding with Jesper Fast. This unfortunate incident marks the fourth concussion of his career, despite him being just 24 years old.

While it might be disheartening for Chytil to return home, it's likely the best step for his ongoing recovery. The Rangers should prioritize a cautious approach to his return, focusing on ensuring his overall health and well-being.

If Chytil is unable to return for the rest of the 2023-24 regular season, the Rangers could gain approximately $3.8 million in additional cap space, considering his $4.437.500 million cap hit. This financial flexibility could open the door to significant roster changes. It's crucial to note that the team's salary cap would not be affected if Chytil were to make a return for the playoffs.

However, the immediate and most important concern remains Chytil's recovery and overall well-being.
