Lundqvist will start against the Oilers on Saturday.

Lundqvist allowed four goals on 47 shots in the Rangers season-opening win over the Jets on October 3rd. Alexandar Georgiev started their second game but thanks to a quirky schedule, Lundqvist will make his second start nine days after his first. The Rangers offence has been impressive through two games, so it could carry King Henrik to the ‘W’ vs. Edmonton on Saturday.

The Rangers have acquired Nick Ebert and a 2021 fourth-round pick from the Senators for Vladislav Namestnikov.

Ebert’s stay with the Senators was short-lived. The 25-year-old defenseman returned from Europe after two years and appeared in just one game with Belleville (AHL) before being traded to New York. Ebert will report to Hartford (AHL).

Georgiev will start Saturday in Ottawa.

Georgiev had a solid rookie campaign, going 14-13-4 with a 2.91 GAA and .914 SV% in 33 games as Henrik Lundqvist’s backup. Depending on how King Henrik plays, Georgiev could be in-line for an even bigger workload in his second full-season. Overall, he has a .915 SV% in 39 career starts and is a solid spot-start option against a bad Senators team.

Lundqvist will start the Rangers season opener vs. Winnipeg.

In his 14th season, Lundqvist was 18-23-10 with career-worsts in GAA (3.07) and SV% (.907). The Rangers revamped their top-6 and blueline this offseason, which should allow Lundqvist to bump-up his win total in 2019-20. He will have to play well to fend off Alexandar Georgiev for starts and it starts Thursday vs. the Jets—he was 0-1-1 with a 3.39 GAA and .910 SV% in two games vs. Winnipeg last year.

The Rangers signed Tony DeAngelo to a one-year deal worth $925K.

DeAngelo emerged as a key part of the Rangers future in 2019, recording 30 points (4G / 26A) in 61 games. The coaching staff was reluctant to use DeAngelo on a nightly basis, scratching him with some regularity, but that should change in 2020. The additions of Jacob Trouba and Adam Fox adds to the competition DeAngelo has for playing time at both 5v5 and on the man-advantage.

The Rangers have signed Brendan Lemieux to a one-year deal worth $925K.

Lemieux was traded to the Rangers last season and finished the season with six points (3G / 3A) in 19 games with New York. Adding Kaapo Kakko, Artemi Panarin and potentially Vitali Kravtsov upfront this offseason is going to make it very difficult for Lemieux to crack the opening night lineup in 2020.

The Rangers have signed Pavel Buchnevich to a two-year, $6.5M contract extension ($3.25M AAV).

Buchnevich set new career-highs in goals (21) and points-per-game (0.59) in 2019 while appearing in 64 games with the Rangers. Buchnevich has been a breakout candidate for the last two seasons, but 2020 looks like his best chance yet. As long as Buchnevich can remain in the Rangers’ to-6, the additions of Artemi Panarin and Kaapo Kakko should give Buchneviche plenty of talent to work with.

The Rangers have re-sign Vinni Lettieri to a one-year contract.

Lettieri spent most of the 2019 season in the AHL, ranking fourth among Hartford skaters with 48 points (23G / 25A) in 48 games. He played sparingly with the Rangers, picking up just three points (1G / 2A) in 27 games. The Rangers added some big names up front this offseason, likely pushing Lettieri back to the AHL to start 2020.

The Rangers have signed Jacob Trouba to a seven-year contract worth $56.0 million ($8.0M AAV).

The Rangers acquired the RFA defenseman from the Jets for Neal Pionk and a 2019 first-round pick on June 18th and signed him through the 2025-26 season. Trouba is coming off of the best year of his career, posting 50 points (8G / 42A) in 82 games with Winnipeg. Trouba immediately becomes the Rangers best defenseman and should see more minutes than he ever saw with the Jets.

The Rangers have signed Phil Di Giuseppe to a one-year contract.

Di Giuseppe was originally picked in the second-round by the Hurricanes back in 2012 but was waived last season and had a brief stint with the Nashville Predators. He has posted decent numbers at lower-levels but has just 41 points (14G / 27A) in 150 career NHL games. The 25-year-old will either start the season in the AHL or as a fourth-liner.

The Rangers have acquired Jacob Trouba from the Jets for Neal Pionk and the No.20 overall pick in the 2019 NHL Draft.

Trouba is a restricted free agent on July 1st but gives the Rangers a bonafide first-pairing defenseman, something they played the entire 2018-19 season without. After missing a combined 49 games in 2017 and 2018, Trouba appeared in all 82 games last year and set a new career-high with 50 points (8G / 42A). Trouba will log massive minutes for the Rangers next season and helps accelerate their rebuild, which was also aided by landing the No.2 overall pick in this year’s draft.

The Senators signed Nick Ebert to a one-year, $700K contract.

Ebert was originally a seventh-round pick of the Kings back in 2012 but never made it to the NHL, appearing in 157 AHL games across three seasons with the Kings and Stars organizations. Ebert left North America after the 2017 and played one season in the KHL and another in the Swedish Elite League, where he had 11 goals and 22 assists (33 points) in 49 games with Orebro HK last season.

The Rangers signed Tarmo Reunanen to an entry-level contract.

Reunanen was a fourth-round pick (No.98 overall) in 2016 and signed after setting career-highs in goals (6), assists (19) and points (25) in 58 games with Luke Rauma of the Finnish Elite League. The 21-year-old defenseman is one of five Liiga defensemen to record at least 25 points, joining Sami Vatanen, Esa Lindell, Ville Pokka and Sami Niku in that group.
