Yes, COPP is a good pickup. Tough winger who fuels a transition game really well, plays center or wing, and is a beast on the power play (as if the Rangers needed another one of those).

Andrew Copp Bio (face off specialist, defensive, tough, physical forward)

Agility and quick feet are excellent assets for a hockey player. Nature and nurture helped Copp acquire a healthy helping of both.

The son of a figure skating coach mom and a hockey coach dad, the Ann Arbor, Michigan, native got a little push from geography as well, growing up with the U.S. National Team Development Program right in his backyard.

A record-setting high school quarterback in Michigan who drew interest from Division I schools, Copp was selected by Winnipeg in the fourth round (No. 104) in the 2013 NHL Draft.

It did not take long for the 6-foot-1, 206-pound forward to prove he could play in the NHL. Many observers said Copp's strong defensive game, quick reads and leadership at the University of Michigan made him the most pro-ready prospect in Winnipeg's system.

After foregoing his final year of college eligibility, Copp joined the Jets for the final game of their 2014-15 season and immediately showed himself to be more than just hype. He recorded an assist for his first NHL point, won 12 of 18 face-offs and finished Winnipeg's 5-1 win against the Calgary Flames with four shots and a plus-2 rating.

The following season Copp drew regular, albeit limited, work as a rookie, playing mostly in a fourth-line checking role. He had an assist in Winnipeg's season-opening 6-2 win against the Boston Bruins and scored his first NHL goal Halloween night in a 3-2 win against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Copp finished his rookie season with a plus-8 rating that tied for third on the Jets, and was tied for 10th among all first-year NHL players. There were also clear signs Copp earned more trust as the season progressed. In his first 20 games of the 2015-16 season, Copp scored one goal and three points while averaging 7:17 of ice time per game. But over his final 20 games, Copp's usage jumped to 10:16 per game as he chipped in five goals and seven points. That included three goals in four straight wins by the Jets to close out the season.

He became a reliable depth forward, reaching double figures in goals in 2018-19 and 2019-20.

The increased scoring rate reflected Copp's production at Michigan, where he scored 40 goals and 81 points in 107 games over three seasons. That included 14 goals and 31 points as team captain in 2014-15, when he earned Big Ten second-team all-star recognition. He was also more of an offensive contributor at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship when he had five assists in five games for the United States.

Absolutely! All three guys we picked up are not only known for being great teammates, but are also big fan favorites, which says a lot!

The holdup on revealing the return probably centers around getting ahold of someone. Hmm Kravstov might be hard to get ahold of.

That’s a win no matter how you slice it. Sorry to see Barron go but no room now anyhow. Drury slammed it out of the park today. Gallant is licking his chops.

Copp played with Tyler Motte in Michigan (along with Boo Nieves), and of course he played with Jacob Trouba when Trouba was in Winnipeg

Copp is a good faceoff guy. We'll see what Gallant does here, but there's some serious depth and competition for roster spots, especially when healthy.

Vs Devils on Tuesday

Kreider Zibanejad Lafreniere
Panarin Strome Vatrano
Goodrow Copp Chytil
Motte Brodzinski Reaves

Playoff roster

Kreider Zibanejad Lafreniere
Panarin Strome Kakko
Vatrano Copp Chytil
Goodrow Rooney Reaves

Lindgren Fox
Miller Trouba
Braun Schneider

Shesterkin

If Chytil doesn't start producing, he sits. Motte is ready....

Kravtsov could still come over, and Blais could return

I think it's a win, except for the condition (pick upgrades to a 1st if Rangers wins 2 playoff rounds and Copp plays 50%). So it could be a 1st, a 2nd & Barron for a rental. If Copp helps bring us to the promised-land, I'm all for it.

The Rangers need Goodrow playing more than fourth line minutes IMO Chytil better start putting forth a consistent effort or he just might be sitting. I’m sort of surprised Gautier didn’t get moved but I guess depth is the key word there.

It's possible, though he's a bit unproven as a second line center. He has though played second line left wing, albeit doesn't have huge offensive numbers, a little below Strome. He also was averaging 2 mins both on PP and PK, so he's likely to see the former shrink here in NY, which might make him look less effective offensively.

He's coming off a $3.64M contract, so the Rangers might be able to get him for a little less than what it'd cost for Strome. He's also one year younger, which doesn't hurt.

We'll see, but if the Rangers do resign him, then it might allow them a little more cap flexibility than if they resign Strome. Yet to be seen whether he has any chemistry with Panarin too...and whether he would have a similar kind of offensive improvement as Strome did when he came here.
