Rangers Trade Derek Stepan to Coyotes Ahead of NHL Draft

25 June 2017

The 26-year-old Stepan had 17 goals and 38 assists and was a plus-19 for NY during this past regular season; and in his seven seasons on Broadway (515 regular-season contests), the Minnesota native has compiled 128 goals and 232 assists for 360 points, with a career plus/minus rating of plus-109.

Raanta went 16-8-2 with four shutouts and a 2.26 goals-against average in 30 games as Henrik Lundqvist's backup last season and has a career goals-against average of 2.33.

The Rangers now own two first-round picks - seventh and 21st overall.

DeAngelo, a right-hander from Sewell, New Jersey, was the 19th overall pick by Tampa in the 2014 draft.

The Rangers also have the 21st overall pick. With that high of a pick, and that large a package being traded away, the Rangers must have several key prospects in mind. He is described as a talented, offensive, puck-moving defenseman, who is working on his discipline. He's more appreciated for his defensive effort. He has played just 39 National Hockey League games since turning pro in 2015. I felt like I was giving the team the chance to win every night ... Hopefully, he can help with the powerplay as we've yet to have a player who could adequately run it since Keith Yandle.

Lynch's surprise meeting with Bill Clinton on an airport tarmac last June drew instant scrutiny from Republicans. The Post reported that one of the foundation's affiliates, Leonard Bernardo , received an email from Rep.

"We were reluctant to get rid of Derek Stepan and Antti Raanta; these were two really good players for us", Gorton. said "Derek, in particular, has been a good Ranger for a long time".

It would've been a mistake not to trade Stepan now because he would've gained a no-trade clause at the end of the month. "It's a journey, but I think we took a big step today". General manager Marc Bergevin said there is a limit on what the Canadiens will give the 39-year-old veteran defenseman. If he's can't, the Coyotes have the luxury of sending him to Tucson for some low-pressure pro experience, just as they did last season with Brendan Perlini.

Chayka said there are still opportunities to add to the roster on Saturday's second day of the draft, but with the pieces now in place, here is what the depth chart looks like for Arizona.

In addition, the Rangers have to re-sign center Mika Zibanejad, a restricted free agent who will get a raise from the $2.625 million he was making this season. NY now needs to go in the market to find one and hope that Benoit Allaire can mold whoever they get as he did with Martin Biron, Talbot and Raanta to maximize his talent.

Buckle up Blueshirts, it might be a bumpy ride.
