The Rangers have the following picks to start off Day 2 of the NHL Draft:
- Third Round: 91st overall (From Colorado)
- Fifth Round: 152nd overall (From Edmonton)
- Sixth Round: 178 (from Winnipeg), 183
They traded their second-round pick to Chicago for Patrick Kane, they traded their third-round pick to Philadelphia during the 2021-22 season for Justin Braun, they traded their fourth-round pick during the 2011-22 season to Vancouver for Tyler Motte, they traded their fifth-round pick during the 2021-22 season to Winnipeg for Andrew Copp, they traded their seventh-round pick to Ottawa this past season for Tyler Motte.
They acquired the 91st overall pick from Colorado for Alex Georgiev, they acquired the 152nd pick from Edmonton for the prospect rights to Jayden Grubbe, they acquired the 178th pick from Winnipeg as part of the Andrew Copp trade.
Adam Rotter: I think that trading down to get more picks, both for today and next year as trade deadline assets, would be smart. But when the Rangers do pick I think that they will focus on defense, especially since they have only take three defensemen in the past three drafts and one of them was Braden Schneider. The defense pipeline needs to be replenished even though there is certainly a world where Adam Fox, K’Andre Miller, Ryan Lindgren and Braden Schneider are the top-four, plus, potentially Jacob Trouba, for many years to come.
