- Rangers acquire Yandle as part of trade with Coyotes
(Reuters) - The New York Rangers landed defenseman Keith Yandle in a multi-player trade with the Arizona Coyotes on Sunday. New York also acquired defenseman Chris Summers and a fourth-round draft pick in a deal that saw them send 19-year-old prospect Anthony Duclair, defenseman John Moore and two draft picks to the Coyotes. In Yandle, the Rangers pick up a veteran presence to help them in their push to the post-season as they are currently two points behind the first-place New York Islanders in the Metropolitan Division. Yandle, 28, has 41 points in 63 games this season and is a two-time 50-point scorer. For the struggling Coyotes this is the second trade for the team in less than 24 hours.
