Rangers Trade Rick Nash to the Boston Bruins

Rangers Trade Rick Nash to the Boston Bruins

He'll essentially fill the spot vacated by Ryan Spooner, who was one of three players shipped back to NY in exchange for Nash.

The B's have officially acquired the veteran winger from the New York Rangers for Ryan Spooner, Matt Beleskey, defensive prospect Ryan Lindgren, and a first-round pick in the 2018 NHL Draft.

Once New York Rangers General Manager Jim Gorton and President Glenn Sather released a letter stating the team would be rebuilding and trading key players, it was clear Rick Nash would be moved.

Nash will meet the Bruins in Buffalo and is considered available for tonight's game against the Sabres. Mats Zuccarello and Ryan McDonagh, who each have one more year left on their respective deals, could be the next ones to leave. He has zero points in 14 games with the Bruins this season and has been with AHL Providence since December.

The Boston Bruins continued solidifying their playoff push by acquiring forward Rick Nash in a multi-player trade with the Rangers that leaves NY retooling for the long-term future.

With the deal, the Rangers now have nine picks in this upcoming draft, including two in each of the first three rounds. Nash is in the final year of his contract and is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. They also received the Bruins' third-round pick with defenseman Rob O'Gara for Holden and acquired New Jersey's second-round pick for Grabner.

NY might not be done dealing with captain Ryan McDonagh also considered to be on the trading block.

According to TSN's Bob McKenzie, the Bruins will retain half of Beleskey's remaining $1.9 million cap hit over the next two seasons. The Montreal Canadiens just traded Thomas Plekanec and a prospect to Toronto for two prospects and a draft pick as I write this, so that helps add to the vision of this trade deadline. In 60 games this year, the 6-foot-4 forward has 18 goals and 10 assists. They've played their way into contender status and adding Nash bolsters their second line with Jake DeBrusk and David Krejci, but also gives them an option on the first line should they feel the need to re-jigger things. In 197 National Hockey League games over the past three seasons, Spooner has registered 113 points (33-80-113), including 10 power-play goals and 10 game-winning goals. He has 7 points at Minnesota right now and with names like Jakub Zboril, Jeremy Lauzon and Urho Vaakanainen still in the prospect pool the team depth is still in good position.
