New York Rangers: NHL Draft Preview

With the NHL Draft Lottery in the books, the New York Rangers shift their focus towards the upcoming draft. After not picking in the first round from 2013 through 2016, the Blueshirts selected Lias Andersson and Filip Chytil with the 7th and 21st picks respectively in 2017. New York will look to add to their improving prospect pipeline this June, as they possess three first-round picks, and a total of seven picks in the first three rounds, thanks to Jeff Gorton’s successful trade deadline.

New York Rangers: Early Offseason News and Notes

The New York Rangers’ season ended in disappointing fashion, but they’ve had a busy start to what should be an eventful offseason. Here is what has happened thus far.

The Isles triumphed by a score of 2-1, but in reality, the Rangers were last night’s real winners.…

Devils Dominate Blueshirts in Critical Metropolitan Division Matchup

On Tuesday night the Rangers had a chance to stunt the Devils’ playoff hopes. New Jersey had the opportunity to further secure their postseason aspirations by extending their lead over the Florida Panthers in the standings with a win over the Blueshirts, and was successful in that quest. New York, who had nothing to play for other than the possibility of spoiling their cross-river rival’s desires, failed to relish this occasion, and put forth one of their most disappointing efforts since the trade deadline. The adrenaline of being on the…
