100 Goals and 300 Points-
Those will be the two most notable career milestones that Stepan secured in his tenure with the Rangers. Both came during the 2015-2016 season.
Stepan scored his 100th career goal on Valentines Day in 2016 against the Philadelphia Flyers. In a 1-0 game, the Rangers got a power play late in the third. Mats Zuccarello’s no look pass set Stepan up for career goal 100 and gave the Rangers the victory.
Later on in the year, Stepan secured his 300th point as a Ranger. The center assisted on Chris Kreider’s 20th goal of the season. The tally helped the Rangers down the Blue Jackets and secure a playoff berth.
Stepan never lit up the scoreboard, but he was a model of consistency for the Rangers.
