GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) The Arizona Coyotes acquired center Derek Stepan and goalie Antti Raanta from the New York Rangers on Friday for defenseman Anthony DeAngelo and the seventh overall pick in the draft.
The Coyotes have made massive changes since Andrew Barroway became sole owner earlier this month, trading away No. 1 goalie Mike Smith, parting ways with coach Dave Tippett and opting not to offer captain Shane Doan a contract. Arizona also acquired defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson from Chicago earlier Friday.
Stepan and Raanta should address two big needs.
