The New York Rangers have gutted their franchise, leaving few veterans still in the lineup. One of those key players was Michael Grabner. Let’s take a look back at his top five moments with New York.
For a long while, this franchise wanted to hold on to its 2014 roster, the roster that made the Stanley Cup Finals. However, many faces since then have come and gone, and so few remain from that magical run.
One of the players brought in from the outside in the attempt to win a Stanley cup was Grabner. The team put a heavy emphasis on speed and the transition game and there are few faster in the entire league. Initially brought in to play on the fourth line and serve as a Carl Hagelin facsimile, Grabner was so much more than that.
Grabner’s time with the New York Rangers wasn’t long, but it was definitely memorable. He’s had some fine moments donning the Rangers’ sweater. Here are his top five.
