Forward Ryan Reaves, who posted the lowest goal total of his 11-year NHL career last season, was acquired by the New York Rangers from the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday.

Vegas received a third-round pick in the 2022 draft in exchange for the 34-year-old veteran.

Reaves logged just one goal and four assists while racking up 27 penalty minutes in 37 games during the 2020-21 regular season. In the playoffs, he had no goals and one assist in 12 games, missing two games after getting suspended for pulling out hair from the Colorado Avalanche’s Ryan Graves.

In 686 career NHL games for the St. Louis Blues (2010-11 to 2016-17), Pittsburgh Penguins (2017-18) and Vegas (2017-18 to 2020-21), Reaves has 49 goals, 52 assists and 937 penalty minutes.

Reaves will be reunited with new Rangers head coach Gerard Gallant, who was in charge at Vegas from 2017-18 to 2019-20.
