Breaking: Per Steve Zipay, Rangers make trade to clear space for Duclair
BOOM goes the dynamite! The Rangers have made a 2 for 1 deal with the Florida Panthers to make room for Anthony Duclair on the roster.
#NYR have acquired F Joey Crabb from Panthers for Andrew Yogan and Steven Kampfer, clearing a contract spot for Anthony Duclair

The Rangers gave up Andrew Yogan who could have a bright NHL future in front of him. The 22 year old Yogan was taken in the 4th round of the 2010 draft. At 6’3″ and 200lbs, he has the size and speed to play center in the NHL.
In return the Rangers landed 31 year old journeyman forward Joey Crabb. The RW will assuredly be sent to Hartford immediately.
Welcome to the start of the Duclair era in NY.
