Coyotes get Stepan, Raanta for DeAngelo from Rangers

"We were reluctant to get rid of Derek Stepan and Antti Raanta; these were two really good players for us", Gorton. said "Derek, in particular, has been a good Ranger for a long time". Sometimes you hit and sometimes you miss.

The first landed them a dependable defenseman in Niklas Hjalmarsson through a trade with Chicago.

The Arizona Coyotes needed a top-pairing partner for defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson so Chayka sent defenseman Connor Murphy and minor-league center Laurent Dauphin to cap-strapped Chicago for Ekman-Larsson's fellow Swede, Niklas Hjalmarsson. The Rangers now have roughly $20 million in cap space with free agency set to begin on July 1.

New York Rangers center Derek Stepan (21) celebrates at the bench after scoring during the first period of an NHL hockey game against the Pittsburgh Penguins, Sunday, April 9, 2017, at Madison Square Garden in New York.

As for DeAngelo, the 21-year-old was a first round draft choice by the Tampa Bay Lightning selected 19th overall in 2014 and was traded to Arizona last season. "Our organization has been searching for a true number one center for over a decade and we are confident that he can be that for us".

Farrell shows class in Lions' win over Crusaders
Should he continue to sparkle, Gatland could be forced to jettison one of either Farrell or Jonathan Sexton from the midfield. Defensively, it was a huge shift for the players, with the Crusaders held scoreless for the first time in 38 games.

Chayka said there are still opportunities to add to the roster on Saturday's second day of the draft, but with the pieces now in place, here is what the depth chart looks like for Arizona. Previous year he appeared in a career-high 30 games and posted a better goals-against average (2.26) and save percentage (.922) than Lundqvist.

The Coyotes are young, and losing 40-year-old Shane Doan and 35-year-old Mike Smith will only make them younger.

They hope Raanta can be the No. 1 they need.

Raanta, 28, was 16-8-2 record in 30 games with the Rangers last season with four shutouts, a 2.26 goals-against average and a.922 save percentage.

"I feel like my game is headed in the right direction", Raanta said. If it weren't for character concerns in his draft year, DeAngelo likely would have been taken much higher than 19th. After five seasons of missing the playoffs, it's time to move forward.
