Raanta won the Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks last season and was traded to the Rangers 12 days later. He also recently got married earlier this month.
"It was a pretty amazing stretch, so many great things going on, but now life is back to normal," Raanta told BlueshirtsUnited.com on Thursday. "To get that phone call, to get traded in the middle of all that, it's just all pretty amazing. I think the honeymoon was the first time I had the chance to relax and realize what has happened the last few weeks. Now it's time to focus on hockey, and I am so excited to be a part of the New York Rangers organization."
