Rangers acquire ex-Islanders forward Ryan Strome from Oilers

Ryan Strome

The New York Rangers acquired forward Ryan Strome from the Edmonton Oilers on Friday in exchange for forward Ryan Spooner. He was acquired in a trade with the Boston Bruins on February 25 with forward Matt Beleskey, defenseman prospect Ryan Lindgren and a first-round pick in the 2018 NHL Draft, for forward Rick Nash.

Spooner was acquired from the Bruins in the trade-deadline deal last season that sent Rick Nash to Boston. Overall, he has 162 points (59 goals, 103 assists) in 358 games with the New York Islanders (2013-17) and Oilers. The earliest he could make his Rangers' debut is tomorrow night against the Panthers.

Spooner, 26, was drafted 45th overall in 2010 by the Boston Bruins and will bring speed to the Oilers lineup. The deal marks the second trade in nine months for Spooner.

Spooner has registered one goal and one assist in 16 games for NY this season. The Rangers will eat $900,000 of the $4 million cap hit they gave Spooner when they re-signed him for two years as a restricted free agent over the summer. After averaging 16:51 for the Rangers last season, Spooner's ATOI in 2018-19 dropped over five minutes a night to 12:41.

Strome has one goal and one assist in 18 games this season.
