The Rangers sit one win from setting the team record for the most wins.


Artemi Panarin was named the NHL’s Third Star of the Week for the week ending April 7 after he recorded eight points (2G-6A) in four games.

Panarin has recorded 116 points (46G-70A) in 79 games, the second most in a single season for a Ranger behind Jaromir Jagr’s 123 in 2005-06. He is the second player (Brian Leetch - 3x) to record multiple 70-assist seasons with the Rangers.

He has points in 10 straight games (8G-14A) and in his last 26 games, he has 48 points (15G-33A), 13 games with 2+ points and nine games with 3+ points.

Panarin ranks among the NHL’s best in multiple categories.

His 14 games of three or more points are tied with Rod Gilbert (1974-75) and Vic Hadfield (1971-72) for the third most in a season in Rangers history.

He has notched a point in 64 of his 79 games this year and needs a point in one more game to set the team record for the most games with a point.


Adam Fox has collected a career-high 16 goals, and 54 assists for 70 points in 69 games this season. It is the most goals by a Rangers defenseman since Brian Leetch in 2000-01 (21). He also joins Leetch (7x) as the only Rangers blueliners to have three or more seasons with 70-plus points. Among NHL defensemen, he ranks tied for sixth in points, seventh in goals and eighth in assists.

Fox has points in 13 of his last 15 games (6G-13A) and has multiple points in five of his last 10 contests. He has 30 points (8G-22A) in his last 26 games and 32 points (8G-24A) in his last 28 games.

Fox recorded his 300th career point on Mar. 30 in Arizona, in his 349th career NHL game. He is one of 13 defensemen in NHL history to reach the feat in fewer than 350 games with only Brian Leetch (295 GP) being the other to do so with the Rangers.


Igor Shesterkin has wins in five of his last seven starts and 34 victories on the year.
In his last 20 games (since Feb. 12), Shesterkin has posted a 14-5-1 record and three shutouts.

Shesterkin has posted his third consecutive 30-win season (30-15-2). Only two other goaltenders in franchise history have had three 30-win campaigns in their career: Henrik Lundqvist (11) and Ed Giacomin (5).

Jonathan Quick has won five in a row and nine of his last 10 starts. He holds a 18-5-2 record in his first season with the Blueshirts and on Friday was named the team’s nominee for the Masterton Trophy, awarded for perseverance & dedication to the sport of hockey.

On Mar. 30 in Arizona, Quick became the all-time wins leader among American-born goaltenders, surpassing Ryan Miller.


Chris Kreider has goals in four-straight games and six of his last seven games. It marks the fourth goal streak of four or more games in his career with his career long being six contests (Jan. 13-24, 2022).

With 39 goals, Kreider is one away from notching the second 40-goal season of his career. Only Mike Gartner (3x), Marian Gaborik (2x), and Jean Ratelle (2x) have multiple 40-goal seasons with the Rangers.

On Mar. 30 in Arizona, he scored his 300th career goal, becoming the third player in franchise history to reach the feat (Rod Gilbert - 406, Jean Ratelle - 336).

Since the 2021-22 season, Kreider’s 127 goals rank sixth in the NHL and in that same time frame, his 52 power play goals rank third.

This season, Kreider has changed the Rangers record books:

  • Surpassed Rod Gilbert (108) for the second most power play goals in franchise history.

With 27 goals and 29 assists, Lafreniere is the first Rangers skater aged 22 or younger since Tony Amonte (1992-93) to have 25-plus goals and 25-plus assists in a single season.

Lafreniere was named the NHL’s Third Star of the Week for the week ending March 31. Lafrenière topped the NHL with five goals and ranked third with seven points (5G-2A) in three games.
