The New York Rangers will pick ninth overall at the June Draft.
The Rangers had the eighth-worst record so they dropped a spot as Carolina moved from 11th to second. It will be a big draft for New York as they have three first round picks, picking late in the first round with selections being owed to them from Tampa Bay and Boston. They could turn things around quickly with an outstanding draft and could move up by trading an extra pick or two. Apr 29 - 7:39 AM

Mats Zuccarello (undisclosed) is not expected to play Tuesday night

Coach Alain Vigneault said Zuccarello was going to undergo an MRI after blocking several shots over the past couple of games. Apparently, the Rangers forward is "having a tough time walking" and Vigneault is "not counting on" Zuccarello playing against New Jersey on Tuesday. It's possible that he could be done for the rest of the year, as New York only has three games left.

Mats Zuccarello wants to stay with the Rangers during the team's rebuild.

Although Zuccarello has seen many of his friends and Ranger veterans shipped out this season, he still wants to be a part of the next great Ranger team. "We’re starting something new here [with] some fresh blood," Zuccarello said. "I think we’re going to be good next year." You have to admire the Norwegian's loyalty, but he's going to find it tough sledding next season with only a handful of established players to skate with.

With Chris Kreider returning to action Friday night the Rangers re-configured their lines.

Matt Zuccarello played alongside Jimmy Vesey and Kevin Hayes on the Rangers' second line.

We'll take a wait and see approach on how the Rangers will end up after the trade deadline.
