2022 New York Rangers Offseason Andrew Copp Ryan Strome Ryan Strome Contract/Future

Ryan Strome and Andrew Copp both intend to test free agency

9:10 PM: Elliotte Friedman said on the NHL Network this afternoon, “I do think they have interest in Copp, I also think there is a lot of interest in Copp out there. I heard there were some conversations with Strome and I heard one of the potential issues was term and the Rangers and Strome maybe had a different sense of eye to eye on term. I think everything I look at with New York is what they are doing at that number two center spot and whether it’s Dubois or somebody else who is out there. I don’t think Scheifele is going to be moved. That is the number one thing I’m looking with the Rangers right now.”

2:25 PM: Larry Brooks writes in the NY Post that both Andrew Copp and Ryan Strome intend to test free agency.

Brooks writes that neither the Rangers nor Copp have closed the door entirely on a return and that the Rangers and Strome could circle back if Strome is still unsigned early in free agency and the Rangers haven’t filled his spot. (NY Post)

What the market for Andrew Copp might be

6/26/22 | On the 5/28 Hockey Night in Canada 32 Thoughts, Jeff Marek spoke about Andrew Copp.

Marek said “Andrew Copp has put himself in a really nice position right now. He is a UFA coming up at the end of the season and a great trade deadline acquisition…and you wonder about the marketplace for someone like Andrew Copp and it kind of sounds as if it’s a combination between Phillip Danault’s contract, maybe Zach Hyman’s contract. Danault is six years $33 million, Zach Hyman is seven-years $38.5 million dollars. It sounds like Copp has positioned himself right into that conversation.”
