The 2009–10 New York Rangers season is the New York Rangers' 83rd season in the National Hockey League. For the first time in five years, the Rangers failed to qualify for the playoffs.

Off-seasonEdit

On May 4, 2009, Markus Naslund announced that he would be retiring after one season with the Rangers. [1]

At the NHL Entry Draft, the Rangers chose Chris Kreider with their first-round pick, 19th overall. The Rangers followed this with a couple of trades at the draft to pick up Brian Boyle and Chad Johnson. A bigger splash was made a few days later when the Rangers traded Scott Gomez to the Montreal Canadiens. With Gomez's $7 million contract gone, the Rangers then signed free agent Marian Gaborik on July 1, the first day of free agency. On July 16, the Rangers announced that Mike Sullivan had been hired as an assistant coach.[2]

On August 16, 2009, Mark Messier rejoined the New York Rangers organization as a special assistant to general manager Glen Sather.[3]

Pre-seasonEdit

Regular seasonEdit

The NHL took a two-week break from February 15-March 1 for the Olympics. The Rangers had five players represent their countries; Chris Drury and Ryan Callahan for the United States, Marian Gaborik for Slovakia, Olli Jokinen for Finland and Henrik Lundqvist for Sweden.
