The New York Rangers likely surprised quite a few pundits when they played their way to the 2022 Eastern Conference Finals, losing to the Tampa Bay Lightning in six games. In the opening hour of free agency, the Rangers bolstered their hopes of improving upon that run by signing forward Vincent Trocheck.
The 29-year old Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native will join the Blueshirts on a seven-year contract according to The Daily Faceoff’s Frank Seravalli.
