"Of all the goalies that weren't elite starters previous year, we think that this is a guy that can do that", Chayka said. "Obviously, we had some salary cap issues (before the trade) and then we got an opportunity to go into the top 10 (in the draft), where there are some players we like, and DeAngelo is a player we liked and the type of player we didn't have".

Sounds like another big Arizona trade is in works.

Hamonic has three years remaining on his contract, which carries a $3.857 million salary-cap charge, according to

Stepan had himself a decent season previous year putting up 55 points in 81 games, and in 515 career games with the Rangers, Stepan has put up 360 points. We drafted him and developed him; and Raanta, since we've had him, has been really good.

It's possible they may view Kevin Shattenkirk as that player instead, but that is going to come at a hefty price. In seven seasons with the Blueshirts, he registered 50 or more points five times, including 55 this past season (17 goals, 38 assists). He has 360 points in 515 games with the Blue Shirts.

Raanta was solid in his role of understudy to Henrik Lundqvist after being acquired from the Blackhawks two seasons ago. The New Jersey native scored five goals to go along with nine assists in 39 games last season as a Coyotes rookie.

This means the only way for private companies to acquire the certificate is to buy a company that already has the certificate. The company has a deal in place with the United States national Football League to stream live content on its platform.

In Stepan, the Coyotes filled a slot that they have arguably been looking to fill since Jeremy Roenick left town in 2001.

"Obviously, we have money now, and my phone rings a little more often now that we have more cap space", he joked. "We took a big step today". Yes, the first-line center is incredibly important and gives them a rock they can rely on down the middle for the first time in years, but they also acquire a cheap and capable replacement for Mike Smith in goal.

The Rangers now have roughly $20 million in cap space.

The New York Rangers decided to make a move for the 7th overall pick ahead of Friday night's 2017 NHL Entry Draft.

DeAngelo, 21, is a right-handed defenseman, a major need for the Rangers since last season.

Gorton is thrilled to add DeAngelo to a defense group that includes another second-year rising star in Brady Skjei and team captain Ryan McDonagh, who is in the prime of his career. "We've got a lot of great young wingers, but they need that stability up the middle of the ice to have success". "Obviously the next goal I want to reach is to play in the National Hockey League so I need to be bigger and I need to be smart about what I eat, but I will get there I'm only 17".
