New York Rangers President and General Manager Chris Drury announced today that the team has acquired forward Alex Wennberg from the Seattle Kraken in exchange for the Rangers’ own second-round selection in the 2024 NHL Draft and a conditional fourth-round selection in the 2025 NHL Draft (originally belonging to Dallas).

Wennberg, 29, has tallied nine goals and 16 assists for 25 points in 60 games for the Kraken this season. Wennberg leads Seattle with four game-winning goals and his 65 blocked shots rank first among team forwards. He ranks seventh on the team in points.

The 6-2, 190 pound forward has collected 90 goals and 240 assists for 330 points in 693 career NHL games across 10 seasons between the Kraken, Florida Panthers and Columbus Blue Jackets. Last season, he tied for the second most goals of his career (13), recorded the third-highest scoring season of his career (38) and set a career-high with four power play goals. While with the Blue Jackets in 2016-17, Wennberg notched a career-high 46 assists and 59 points.

The Stockholm, Sweden native has accumulated 42 playoff games, recording seven goals and 10 assists for 17 points. In last year’s postseason run with the Kraken, Wennberg tallied seven points (2G-5A) in 14 games.

On the international stage, Wennberg helped Sweden finish second at the IIHF World Junior Championship in 2013 and 2014.

Wennberg was originally selected by the Blue Jackets in the first round, 14th overall, of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
