Moments ago, the Rangers announced that they traded Wolf Pack forward Peter Holland to the Blackhawks organization in exchange for defenseman Darren Raddysh.
Raddysh, 22 (23 on 2/28), has skated in 54 games with the IceHogs of the AHL this season, and has 8-18–26.
He has set AHL career-highs this season in goals, assists & points. Among AHL d-men younger than 23 in 2018-19, he is tied for 5th in goals and is tied for 8th in points.

Holland has spent the entire season in Hartford after playing 23 games for the Rangers last season. This season, Holland recorded 63 points (25G, 38A) in 68 games with the Wolf Pack.
As for Raddysh, the soon to be 23-year-old defenseman has registered 48 points (13G, 35A) in 120 games for the Rockford Ice Hogs. Raddysh is only in his second professional season, which gives the Rangers another young blue liner that could play a role in the future of the organization.
