New York Rangers

The Rangers have acquired Matt Beleskey, Ryan Spooner, Ryan Lindgren, a 2018 1st round pick and a 2019 7th round pick from the Bruins for Rick Nash.

Beleskey has an ugly contract, with two years remaining at a $3.8M AAV cap-hit. The Bruins will retain 50% of that contact but it remains to be seen if he will join the Rangers or the Wolf Pack. He had no points in 14 games with the Bruins before being placed on waivers and sent to Providence (AHL) were he had just four goals and two assists (six points) in 21 games.

Beleskey is day-to-day with a foot contusion.

The veteran winger is expected to be sidelined for at least a few days after suffering a foot injury during the Bruins’ preseason game on Monday. Beleskey is coming off of an ugly 2016-17 season—3G / 5A (8 points) in 49 games—and his injury will allow the coaching staff to get a closer look at some of their younger wingers.
