After the 2015 NHL Draft ended, the Blackhawks started trading.
Antti Raanta joined a long list of goaltenders traded this weekend as the Hawks sent the 26-year-old netminder to the New York Rangers for minor-league forward Ryan Haggerty.
Haggerty, 22, was not drafted and signed as a college free agent last spring after spending three years at RPI. He posted 15 goals and 18 assists with Hartford in the AHL last season.
In 14 games with Chicago during the 2014-15 season, Raanta had a 7-4-1 record, .936 save percentage and 1.89 goals against average.
The deal clears $750,000 off the Hawks’ payroll for 2015-16.
New York traded their backup goalie from last year, Cam Talbot, to Edmonton on Saturday.
