The New York Rangers have scored only once on the power play.
The Rangers are 1-16 against the Penguins in the first four games of the playoffs and it's no wonder that they are on the brink of elimination Saturday as they are down three games to one. Keith Yandle is the quarterback of the power play and he needs to get his game in gear as he has one goal in four games after a five goal and 47 point performance during the regular season.

Keith Yandle recorded two assists in the Rangers 5-2 victory of the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night.

Yandle is having another nice season with the Rangers. In 74 games played, the 29 year-old has five goals and 42 points this season. He should be considered a high-end defenceman in fantasy with his point production.
Mar 24 - 8:13 AM

Rangers GM Jeff Gorton has a clear message when it comes to pending UFA Keith Yandle, "we're not trading him."

The 29-year-old defender is having another fine season and is on pace for his fourth straight 40+ point campaign. He's posted five goals and 35 points, while averaging mere seconds below 20 minutes a night. It wouldn't be a stretch to say he's been the team's best, and most consistent, performer thus far either.

The Rangers have told Keith Yandle he won’t be traded by the deadline, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.

A reality that has become clearer each day. The Rangers would lose a prominent part of their blue line if they traded away Yandle, who filled in quite well when Ryan McDonagh was sidelined. Yandle has 34 points. The Rangers consider themselves contenders. It never seemed like a good idea to move him.

Keith Yandle scored the game-tying goal with just under 13 seconds in a 3-2 shootout win over the Flyers.

Yandle is consistently brought up in trade rumors but continuously produces for the Rangers. He finished Saturday's game with 27:33 of ice-time, due in large part to Ryan McDonagh leaving the game with an upper-body injury. If McDonagh is out for a stretch, we find it very hard to believe that the Rangers would trade Yandle.
Feb 6 - 4:19 PM

Keith Yandle found the back of the net in a 4-1 win against Carolina on Friday.

Yandle has three goals and 25 points in 47 contests this season. That puts him on pace for 43 points, but we wouldn't be surprised if he finishes 2015-16 slightly above that, in the 45-50 point range.
Jan 23 - 5:45 AM

Keith Yandle will be dealt by the Feb. 29 trade deadline, according to Sportsnet’s Damien Cox.

Cox says Yandle doesn’t want to negotiate an extension with the Rangers, who paid a hefty price for him at last year’s deadline and are on the hook for half of his $5.25 million cap hit. Yandle has two goals and 22 points this season and has arguably been the team’s best blueliner. As a puck-mover, he will draw heavy interest, though it will only make the Rangers’ corps weaker.
Jan 9 - 11:38 PM

It appears that Keith Yandle may become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.

Yandle said that he and his agent have not talked about an extension but the Rangers and his agent have. Do not be surprised that if something cannot be done by the trade deadline, Yandle could find himself in another uniform. Yandle has only two goals and 21 points in 40 games this season, way short of the point totals he was putting up with the Coyotes. He should be on someone's fantasy roster but should be more valuable in another uniform.

Keith Yandle registered his 15th and 16th assists of the season in New York's 4-2 win over Edmonton.

Yandle assisted on goals by Mats Zuccarello and Dylan McIlrath in Tuesday's win, skating just over 16 and a half minutes and finishing the evening a plus-2. The 29-year-old now totals one goal and 17 points in 32 games. Rick Nash and Jesper Fast had the other two Ranger goals.

Coach Alain Vigneault said that the play of Keith Yandle has improved of late.

Yandle has struggled at times on the blueline and has only a goal and 13 points in 27 games well below his pace of the last two seasons when he had 52 and 53 points respectively. "Keith is coming along," Vigneault said. "There will always be moments in games when Keith is going to make a low-percentage play that could be high-reward. For the most part, I’ve really liked his last three or four games, since the Boston game [last Friday]. He’s been more effective." We shall see.

Keith Yandle had an assist in the Rangers' 3-0 win over Nashville on Monday.

Yandle has 11 points in 21 games, which matches his output during the 2014-15 regular season with the Rangers. It also puts him on pace for 43 points, which is a realistic target for him this season.
Tue, Nov 24, 2015 06:24:00 AM

The New York Rangers and Keith Yandle haven't begun talks about a contract extension.

"We haven’t had any discussions with the Rangers," Yandle’s agent, Jerry Buckley said. "There is no timetable as far as we are concerned. I know Keith likes it in New York and likes the team, but his entire focus is on having a good year and winning. I don’t anticipate there being a deadline for Keith to sign during the season. Both sides will have a clearer idea of how they want to proceed at the end of the year." The Arizona Coyotes retained half of Yandle's cap hit when he was acquired, which means that the Rangers are only responsible for $2,625,000 this season. That's a steep discount for Yandle, but obviously they won't have that luxury from 2015-16 onward should they re-sign him. That might make it difficult for the Rangers to fit him under the ceiling, although it certainly seems doable if the Rangers feel he's a priority.

Keith Yandle received a great ovation upon his return to the Gila River Arena for the first time as a member of the New York Rangers.

The blueliner was dealt from the Coyotes near the trade deadline last season. "He’s a great guy, and I think everybody misses him a lot," defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson said. "Obviously, that’s the sad part about getting traded and that’s part of the game, too. Obviously, I would love to have him on my team." Yandle picked up an assist Saturday and now has a goal and eight points in 14 games.

Keith Yandle will play in Arizona against his former Coyote teammates for the first time since his trade last season.

Yandle was a fixture on the Coyotes blueline for parts of nine seasons before he was dealt to the Rangers at the trade deadline last season. He has a goal and seven points in 13 games and should get a standing ovation from the crowd in Glendale. He should be started in DFS games on Saturday.

Keith Yandle is now in second place as far as active consecutive games played in the NHL at 478.

He took over from over Coyote teammate Antoine Vermette who saw his streak end at 482 games on Saturday. Yandle trails only Andrew Cogliano who is sitting at 628 games. Cogliano has yet to miss a game since his career started in Edmonton eight years ago.
