The New York Rangers’ rebuild has officially begun! Fresh off the heels of sending Nick Holden to Boston on Tuesday, the Blueshirts have dealt Michael Grabner to the New Jersey Devils. Yup. Seriously. The Devils.

Igor Rykov, 20, is currently playing with SKA of the KHL and was the Devils’ fifth-round pick (132nd) in 2016.

Since he was signed in the summer of 2016, Grabner’s 52 goals have lead all Rangers in goal scoring with Rick Nash (41) and Chris Kreider (39) not terribly far behind.

Prior to the call, Grabner had been held out of the line up tonight in preparation for a trade.
