Michael Grabner was traded to New Jersey yesterday. 

 

 It is no surprise that the New York Rangers have made a trade before Monday's NHL trade deadline day.

The Rangers are absolutely awful this season and are in risk of missing the postseason for the second time in 12 years.

The last time the Rangers missed the playoffs was 2009-10.

The Rangers have lost five straight, including 12 out of their last 15 games and are dead last in the Metropolitan Division.

Yesterday, the Rangers shipped their best scorer, Michael Grabner, to the New Jersey Devils for defenseman, Yegor Rykov and a second round pick in this year's draft.

Grabner is now the 12th player to play for the Rangers, Devils, and the New York Islanders.  He also played for the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Vancouver Canucks, playing nine seasons in the NHL

The Devils are 11 points ahead of the Rangers in the Metropolitan Division and are in a playoff spot.

Grabner has 25 goals after playing 59 games this season.

Grabner scored 27 goals for the Rangers last year after the club signed him to a two-year, $3.3 million contract.

Grabner's best season was 2010-11 when he scored a career high of 34 goals.
