Rangers Send Ryan Reaves to Minnesota

The Minnesota Wild and New York Rangers have come together on a trade that has sent forward Ryan Reaves to St. Paul. Heading back to the Big Apple is a 2023 fifth round draft pick.

The 35-year-old Winnipeg product will now suit up a bit closer to home on the daily after reportedly requesting a trade from the Rangers following a stretch of seven healthy scratches in eight games.

Having dressed in just 12 games for New York this year, the 6-foot-2, 230-pound enforcer has 12 penalty minutes and 44 hits to his name this season. Last year (his first with the Rangers) Reaves put up five goals, 13 points, 43 penalty minutes and 279 hits in 69 games. He skated in 18 Stanley Cup Playoff games as well.

Reaves is now under contract with the Wild for the remainder of the 2022-23 season, to the tune of $1.75 million. He is also now reconnected with Marcus Foligno – to whom the two have shared some spirited tilts over the past few years.

In 767 career regular season games with the St. Louis Blues, Pittsburgh Penguins, Golden Knights and Rangers, he has scored 54 times and added 60 assists for 114 points to go along with 992 penalty minutes. He made it to the Stanley Cup Final with the Vegas Golden Knights in 2018, beating his hometown Winnipeg Jets in the Western Conference Final.
