He's played well in AHL. He played well during preseason. He's gotten high praise from team mates and coaches.

I imagine they give him a 2-4 game trial. If not, i'm sure they will look to give Hedberg a shot or acquire a better, more veteran back up, through trade.
If the Ranger organization thinks this is just a bump in the road and is not the wheels coming off, then they shouldn't mess around with a backup goalie who has no NHL experience. And given that the Rangers only play 4 games in the next two weeks, I don't expect whomever is the backup to get any playing time, unless Lundqvist needs to be relieved during a game again.

AV didn't want Biron from the get-go. Hedberg was never an option (is he even playing somewhere now?), he never even got a minute of playing time in pre-season. But, Sather has always discounted the backup goaltender position, so who knows what's going to happen.
