RANGERS, AVALANCHE SWAP AHL D-MEN Monday, February 26, 2018
The New York Rangers acquired defenseman Chris Bigras from the Colorado Avalanche for defenseman Ryan Graves.
What does it give the New York Rangers?
The 23-year-old Bigras has NHL experience (46 games with Colorado). He is still young enough to turn into a decent (albeit unspectacular) defenseman in the big league.
What does it give the Colorado Avalanche?
Graves is a bigger defenseman (6-5, 216 pounds) but he has zero NHL experience. He will turn 23 later this year, so this clearly is a swap of preferences in terms of AHL D-men.
Fantasy Impact
Neither Bigras nor Graves has much in the way of long-range fantasy value, so there is not much to see here.
