The New York Rangers traded defenseman Ryan McDonagh to the Tampa Bay Lightning, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.

For now, we know that forward J.T. Miller is also heading to Tampa in the deal. 

The return for both Rangers players is a load of prospects and only one NHL player at the moment. The Bolts are sending to New York forwards Vladislav Namestnikov and Brett Howden, young blue liner Libor Hajek, a 2018 first round pick and a conditional second-round pick. 


  • Trades started pouring earlier this week when the New York Rangers pulled two of their star players, Michael Grabner and Rick Nash, from the lineup Tuesday before the game against the Montreal Canadiens.  Hours later, Grabner was traded to the New Jersey Devils for a second round pick as well as Devils' prospect Yegor Rykov.

Saturday was less agitated on the trade market as teams seemed to be getting ready for a busy Sunday, and it was. 

  • There was also 12 names, including the ones of Sens’ Johnny Oduya and Alex Burrows who landed on the waiver wire.
