New York Rangers Rumors: 2 Players Getting Traded

New York Rangers general manager Chris Drury has already been a busy man this season on the trade market and word is he's far from done. As we've seen with the latest round of scratches for trade-related reasons, two Rangers are finished in New York.

Vitali Kravtsov has been all over the map these past couple of seasons as he's demanded trades in the past. Apparently he's once again not happy with his role on the team and would prefer a move and it appears one is on it's way. He's a 23-year-old winger with a ton of potential and was a former ninth overall draft pick. So far this season he's appeared in 28 games and has scored three times and chipped in with six points. Kravtsov's cap hit is $875,000 and he's a pending restricted free agent.

The other scratch from Thursday night's game was center Jake Leschyshyn. The 23-year-old pivot is in the first season of a recent three-year deal and carries a cap hit of $766,667. He's a former second-round pick of the Vegas Golden Knights and has yet to record a point in 13 games with the Rangers and another 22 with the Golden Knights. 

Expect to see both players traded in the coming days.
