Report: Rangers move fast to secure versatile 5-time All-Star in free agency

Rangers may be interested in versatile 5-time All-Star in free agency.
Once again, the New York Rangers fell short of hockey’s ultimate objective. Despite winning the President’s Trophy with a franchise record 114 points and appearing unstoppable to begin the playoffs by winning seven straight games and taking a 2-1 series lead over the Florida Panthers, the Blue and White were eliminated in game six of the Eastern Conference Finals for the second time in three seasons.

The Blueshirts will now consider what-if scenarios and approach the offseason aiming to strengthen their lineup for another shot at the championship, which has eluded them since 1994.

While many Rangers fans are looking for a trade to add some star power, the blue and white have been linked to a former All-Star seeking his first Stanley Cup.

The Rangers are anticipated to express interest in Max Pacioretty.According to Peter Baugh of the Athletic (via Cole Shelton of Heavy), the Rangers are anticipated to express an interest in pending unrestricted free agent forward Max Pacioretty.

“If New York chooses the less expensive alternative, Washington Capitals unrestricted free agent Max Pacioretty might be an option. The Rangers were one of the teams who enquired about him at the deadline, but he chose not to waive his no-trade clause at that time,” Baugh stated.


“After missing all but four games in 2022-23, the 35-year-old had four goals and 23 points in 47 regular-season games for the Capitals, followed by one assist in four playoff games against the Rangers.” He’s from Connecticut, as is Drury.
The 35-year-old is a five-time All-Star, having scored 330 goals and 338 assists in 902 regular-season games. Pacioretty has appeared in 78 playoff games, scoring 25 goals and adding 25 assists.
