NHL Burning Matters: New York Rangers

Welcome back to the latest file in’s “Three Burning Questions” series. In this feature, we generate three big questions for every NHL team prior to the start of the 2022-23 regular season. In this file, we’re asking Three Burning Questions about the New York Rangers.


1. What can the Rangers do to ease the burden of superstar goalie Igor Shesterkin? No goaltender did more for his team in the regular season last year than Shesterkin, who earned his first Vezina Trophy as the game’s top goalie. The 26-year-old Russian stole many a game for the Blueshirts in 2021-22, often overcoming a lackluster defensive scheme to push the Rangers into the win column more often than not. However, Rangers GM Chris Drury chose a different look for Shesterkin’s backup – parting ways with Alexandar Georgiev, and instead going with veteran Jaroslav Halak.
