As we previously reported, barring a trade to either the NYR or CBJ, Ilya Kovalchuk has opted to return to the KHL.

What else is there to say other than, WELCOME HOME SHATTY!
Thank You Step for seven great years with the Rangers!
The Rangers have traded Antti Raanta and Derek Stepan to Arizona, as well as Oscar Lindberg being selected by Vegas, Jeff Gorton now has a lot of cap space to complete his roster for next season. But with these moves, the Rangers have lost two centermen and a backup goalie that need replacing. Add in Dan Girardi’s buyout, and Gorton will have to find all the right pieces to fill in those gaps.
The Rangers have traded forward Derek Stepan and backup goaltender Antti Raanta to the Arizona Coyotes for young defenseman Anthony DeAngelo and the 7th overall pick in tonight’s entry draft.
In just his first year with the Rangers, Michael Grabner has endeared himself to the Garden faithful. And while scoring 27 goals during the regular season will certainly do that, it has been his offseason Twitter activities that have made him a real favorite. Here are just a few of Grabner’s greatest hits.
A short career with the Rangers, but a good one. Good luck in Vegas, Oscar Lindberg!
With the NHL Expansion Draft just hours away, all kinds of leaks are going on. And based on reports from Larry Brooks, Darren Dreger, and Frank Seravalli, it appears that Oscar Lindberg will be leaving the bright lights of New York for the Las Vegas Strip.
It may only be June 21st, but the Rangers have gotten fans excited in anticipation. The Rangers announced their home opener for October 5th against the Colorado Avalanche. Not the “rivalry” matchup that the Rangers had last year against the Islanders, but certainly a game that will hopefully get the Rangers off on the right foot for the 2017-18 season.
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey RangersTown!
