Gritty forward Mason Kohn was dealt to the Oshawa Generals for a 2nd (2019), 3rd (2021) and a conditional 3rd (2022) this morning. The last pick kicks in if Kohn plays his overage year.
The 19-year-old was shocked to be moved and it was a sad farewell at the Aud.
The Rangers like the picks and want to continue to "build through the draft" according to GM Murray Hiebert.
The team does have potential excess OAs for next season so there is some preventative problem solving going on here.
The Rangers have lost two of their more feisty and physical players in dealing Kohn and Jacob Cascagnette. It'll be interesting to see who fills their shoes.
Opportunity is aplenty, that's for sure.
Kohn had 19 points in 38 games this season and was a go-to guy when it came to shutting down the opposition's top players.
