We knew most of these picks, with the Rangers winning the draft lottery and the Carolina Hurricanes being eliminated early. The only outstanding pick was the third rounder, which was impacted by the Dallas Stars.
The Rangers received that third round pick as part of the Mats Zuccarello trade. This pick would have been a 1st rounder this year if Zucc re-signed with Dallas. Instead it became a 3rd rounder.
The only round the Rangers don’t have a pick is the second round. There’s always the possibility of them trading back from the #22 to get one. There’s also a possibility to move up using a third round pick. There are a lot of options for the NY Rangers using their draft picks to move around.
