Adam Fox grew are up a Mets fans and got to live out his boyhood dream of walking on Citi Field. The freshly crowned Norris Trophy winner was greeted by Francisco Lindor and the two swapped jerseys. The Mets shortstop can clearly be heard congratulating him on his big award.

The Rangers 23 year-old defenseman had quite a season, and was enjoying himself yesterday. Fox even signed a few baseballs for some fans.

“It was surreal to find out I was nominated for the Norris Trophy let alone win it,” Fox said about winning the Norris. “Brian (Leetch) is an all-time Ranger, a Hall of Famer, his jersey is in the rafters, he’s won some Norris Trophies himself. So for him to present me the award is special.”

Fox will continue to enjoy his summer, as fans look forward to what he does on the ice next.

Rangers 15th overall pick still in play

We reported back on June 7th that the Rangers first overall pick was in play this summer.

On July 23rd -24th the NHL Draft will take place and Chris Drury currently holds the 15th selection after the lottery drawing.

There’s been speculation that the Rangers, who have an overload of young players and prospects would package the 15th overall pick. A knowledgeable source confirmed that all options are on the table this summer and that includes moving the first round selection.

The speculation was that the pick would only be in a trade for a big center like Jack Eichel. Another source has informed me that even if the Rangers miss on the Sabres center, they could still use that pick to improve in other areas.
