Rangers Roundup: Draft update, Max Domi, Jesper Fast, and more
Good Morning Rangers fans! The long Labor Day weekend has begun. Please enjoy yourselves and stay safe. Here’s the latest New York Rangers news for you to catch up on.
Rangers draft pick update
When the Dallas Stars won their game 7, it meant the Rangers could not pick any worse than 23rd with their second first round pick. When the Vancouver Canucks lost theirs, it meant they could not jump up to 21.
So today, the Blueshirts can move up one more spot to 22 if the New York Islanders beat the Flyers. What do you think Rangers fans want to happen? That’s easy, overwhelmingly 57% of almost 900 voted they can never root for the Isles.
Trade Target: Max Domi
In case you missed it, I wrote about the Rangers possibly making an offer to obtain the RFA rights of Max Domi from Montreal. There’s rumors floating around that the Penguins, Blue Jackets, and Rangers are interested.
Jesper Fast update
Recently, I spoke with a source close to Jesper Fast that told me that he is likely heading to free agency. I followed this up with another source closer to the Rangers side, who confirmed that there have been no recent discussions between the two sides as of today.
As it stands, it appears the Rangers will allow Jesper Fast to hit the market when the bell opens for free agency.
