    Rangers send top scorer Michael Grabner to Devils for pick, prospect

    The New York Rangers have traded leading scorer Michael Grabner to the New Jersey Devils.

    New Jersey shipped defenseman prospect Yegor Rykov and a second-round pick in this year's draft to New York.

    The veteran forward leads New York with 25 goals and six assists. There have been only three players in the last 40 years to have a season with 25-plus goals and single-digit assists, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

    Grabner, set to be an unrestricted free agent after the season, leaves a Rangers team that is 27-29-5 and has made no secret that it planned to unload talent ahead of Monday's trade deadline.

    The 20-year-old Rykov has 2 goals, 12 assists and a plus-13 rating in 51 games for SKA Saint Petersburg of the KHL this season.
