2 New York Rangers Trade Candidates Heading Into 2024 Offseason

New York Rangers GM Chris Drury has never been shy running the team, making several bold moves throughout his tenure. The Rangers have once again added ahead of the trade deadline and are looking to make a long Stanley Cup Playoff run. Once the postseason concludes, look for Drury to be active on the trade market at the NHL Entry Draft and into the offseason.

Here are three Rangers who are likely hitting the trade market this summer:

Kaapo Kakko

There was a lot of speculation over Kakko's desire to be traded ahead of this season's deadline and it's very likely we see a move this summer. Kakko hasn't reached the potential the team was hopeful of when they selected him #2 overall in the draft and so far this season, his production has been inconsistent, registering 10 goals and 14 points in 50 games. At just 23 years old, there's going to be a long list of suitors and look for a team like the Chicago Blackhawks or Anaheim Ducks make pitches this summer. Kakko wants more ice time and he'll likely be getting it next season wearing new threads.

Louis Domingue

With the lack of goaltending depth across the league, even though Domingue just signed a one-year extension with the Rangers, there's going to be some teams interested in adding the southpaw netminder. Domingue's been great this season,  mostly in the AHL, posting a .910 SV.% in 24 games. He's bounced a lot recently and at 32 is still looking to find a full time NHL job. With Ilya Shesterkin and Jonny Quick coming back next season, Domingue will be involved in some trade conversations this summer.
