Rangers Goaltending

It's been a week since the New York Rangers announced that they would buy out the remainder of Henrik Lundqvist's contract, thus ending the life-long Rangers' incredible career with the organization. Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers (Amy Irvin / The Hockey Writers) The 38-year-old Swede has been the face of Rangers goaltending since the 2005-06 season, and after 15 years with the Rangers, he is ready for a new chapter, much like his former team.  Related: Rangers News & Rumors: Lundqvist Buyout and Potential New Teams The buyout and overall rebranding of the organization did not come as a shock. Talk of Lundqvist’s fate had been persistent, but the outcome could have been different. The Rangers had three goaltenders on the roster at one point during the 2019-20 season, until their playoff elimination left even more room for speculation. In recent years, the organization had established a steady pipeline of goaltending prospects mostly playing for their...

The New York Rangers have traded forward Lias Andersson to the Los Angeles Kings for the #60 overall pick in the 2020 NHL Draft. With this trade, the Rangers have given up on one of the bigger draft-day risks that they have taken in recent memory. Andersson was originally selected seventh-overall at the 2017 Draft, which was seen as a bit of a reach at the time, but was a risk worth taking if he was able to develop a complete, NHL level skillset. After struggling to establish himself in New York, however, Andersson spent some time in the AHL before deciding to return to Sweden for the 2020-21 season after it became clear that he had no defined role with the franchise. The New York Rangers have traded Lias Andersson to the Los Angeles Kings for the #60 overall pick at the 2020 NHL Draft. (Jess Starr/The Hockey Writers) When it came out that Andersson would not be returning to the Rangers for the 2020 Stanley Cup...

The wait is finally over, Rangers’ fans! The New York Rangers selected Alexis Lafreniere first overall, landing the best player in the 2020 NHL draft.  After an improbable lottery win landed the Rangers the first selection, fans and staff alike have been awaiting the day where the French-Canadian would virtually put on a Blueshirts' jersey. On Tuesday, that day arrived. The Rangers selected Lafreniere first overall, adding the young superstar to a roster with the likes of Artemi Panarin, Mika Zibanejad, and last year’s second selection Kaapo Kakko.  Alexis Lafrenière (Photo by Vincent Ethier/CHL) Lafreniere registered 35 goals and 77 assists for 112 points with Rimouski Oceanic of the QMJHL. Those lofty point totals started to give Lafreniere household recognition, but his MVP performance at the World Junior Championships put his draft status over the top.  Despite being banged up in pool play, the winger scored 10 points (four goals, six assists) in...
