Yandle (shoulder) played with a sprained AC joint for much of the Rangers' playoff run, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

Analysis:

The injury didn't noticeably affect Yandle's playing time or production during the playoffs, but the fact that New York was so banged up on the blue line (Ryan McDonagh, Marc Staal, and Dan Girardi also played through injuries) likely contributed to their demise in the Eastern Conference Finals. The injury shouldn't prevent Yandle from being back at full health when training camp commences in September.
