New York Rangers

The Rangers have acquired Vladislav Namestnikov, Libor Hajek, Brett Howden, 2018 1st Round Pick and a conditional 2nd Round Pick from the Lightning for Ryan McDonagh and J.T. Miller.

Namestnikov had a blistering start to the season picking up 33 points (15G / 18A) in his first 38 games but has struggled with just 11 points (5G / 6A) in his last 24. In New York he won’t have the luxury of playing with Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov, but he should still play a top-6 role.

Namestnikov left Thursday’s game with a lower-body injury and did not return.

Namestnikov played just 6:52 TOI before exiting Thursday’s game with a lower-body injury. Namestnikov doesn’t have a big fantasy impact given he has just nine goals and 15 assists (24 points) in 62 games this season, but he plays a key role in the Lightning offence, especially after they traded Valtteri Filppula to Philadelphia.

Namestnikov (upper-body) will not play on Thursday.

Namestnikov will miss his second straight game with an upper-body injury. Ondrej Palat is listed as a game-time decision and if he can’t play like Namestnikov, look for the Lightning to go with seven defensemen again. Namestnikov practiced on Tuesday and took part in today’s morning skate, so he isn’t far from returning to the lineup.
