The Rangers have acquired their second 7th round pick of the trade deadline, sending goalie Marek Mazanec to Vancouver for a
2019 2020 7th rounder. The Rangers had previously acquired an additional 2020 7th rounder from Nashville for Cody McLeod.
Mazanec played two seasons with a dreadful Hartford team, making 20 starts in each of those seasons. He went from backup to starter this season, though. He was called up a few times to the Rangers, but mostly as a warm body on the bench to backup Henrik Lundqvist while Alex Georgiev was getting minutes in Hartford.
The 7th rounder in this deal replaces the 7th rounder that the Rangers sent to Boston as part of the Adam McQuaid deal.
