The New York Rangers acquired winger Tyler Motte from the Vancouver Canucks for a fourth-round draft pick in 2023.

What does it give the New York Rangers
This is a solid depth acquisition for the Rangers, a team that has vaulted into contender status very quickly. Motte will likely play a bottom-six forward role and kill penalties with his new team.

What does it give the Vancouver Canucks
The Canucks got a lot of mileage out of Motte as a bottom-six winger and penalty killer. Getting back a fourth-rounder in '23 is decent but more moves were expected by Vancouver. They are at a crossroads.

Fantasy impact
Motte's ice time may be steady in New York, but that is not enough to be a fantasy option down the stretch.
