NHL Rumors: New York Rangers Shopping Forward Again

While on Hockey Night in Canada, NHL insider Elliotte Friedman reported that New York Rangers winger Vitali Kravtsov is available for trade yet again.

Last season, Kravtsov requested a trade from the Rangers, but New York opted to keep him around for another season to see if he could turn things around. However, things have not gotten much better for Kravtsov in 2022-23, as he has just three goals and six points in 28 games played. A major reason for his low statistics has been his limited role, so a change of scenery could benefit him a lot at this point.

The Rangers could use Kravtsov as one of the pieces to land another notable player before the deadline passes from here. Rebuilding teams would likely love to take a chance on the former top prospect, but we will need to wait and see if a move comes to fruition from here.
