On Friday, Derek Stepan was traded to the Arizona Coyotes in the New York’s first big offseason move.
Stepan was dealt along with Antti Raanta for the 7th pick in this years draft and defensive prospect Anthony DeAngelo.
In seven seasons with the Rangers, Stepan totaled 360 points and ranked tied for 11th with 25 game winning goals. Stepan also ranks fourth all time, with 97 career playoff games played for the Rangers.
Many thought Stepan would be part of a core of career Rangers, but his departure to Arizona signifies the end of a tremendous career in Broadway blue.
In honor of Derek Stepan, here are his top five moments as a New York Ranger.
