Rangers sign Yegor Rykov to ELC

The Rangers have announced the signing of KHL defenseman Yegor Rykov who was acquired from the Devils in the Michael Grabner deadline deal in 2018.

To correct Lavoie’s tweet, Rykov was drafted by the NJD. Rykov’s out clause isn’t uncommon, and it wouldn’t surprise me if he used it should he be unable to crack the Rangers lineup by 2021.
