The Rangers are interested in Hurricanes defenseman Andrej Sekera, according to HNIC’s Elliotte Friedman.

Sekera is in the last year of a four-year contract that carries a $2.75 million cap hit. The Rangers were already missing Dan Boyle, and Saturday saw Ryan McDonagh and Kevin Klein get injured. With Carolina struggling and likely to be among the worst teams in the league, Sekera will probably be dealt, though Friedman says he’s "not sure" whether the Hurricanes are ready to move him. The 28-year-old has three assists on the year, while averaging 20:13.
