Andrew Copp started the Rangers off right Thursday night recording a natural hat-trick in the first period against the Islanders.
The 27-year-old has fit right in since landing in the Big Apple on trade deadline day. Playing on a line with Artemi Panarin and Ryan Strome, the right winger has recorded 8 goals and 10 assists in 15 games in Rangers blue and red. Copp now has a career-high 53 points on the year.
Andrew Copp tallied a secondary assist on Justin Braun's goal in the third period. Copp had one shot, two penalty minutes, and two hits in the victory.
Copp has been a great addition for the Rangers thus far with nine points in eight games with the team. Overall, he has 44 points in 64 games and is certainly worth adding to fantasy rosters given his strong form.
Andrew Copp added two assists in his first game with the Rangers, helping Adam Fox in the first period and Chris Kreider on a power play in the third period. He also had two shots, two hits, and a -1 rating.
Copp now has 24 assists and 37 points this season. He also has five assists in his last two games, and may be heating up. Surrounded by better players, look for him to be worth adding in deeper leagues, and potentially all leagues in the future.
Former Winnipeg Jets center Andrew Copp has been traded to the New York Rangers, along with a 2023 sixth-round pick, in exchange for prospect center Morgan Barron, two conditional second-round picks, and a 2023 fifth-round pick. The first conditional second-round pick becomes a 2022 first-round pick if the Rangers win two rounds this year and Copp plays 50% of the games. The second conditional pick is Winnipeg's choice of St. Louis's 2022 second-round pick, initially acquired by New York in the Pavel Buchnevich trade, or New York's 2023 second-round pick. Copp is on the final year of his contract with a cap hit of $3.64M. Barron has one year remaining on his entry-level contract, valued at $0.925M per year.
Copp immediately provides a massive boost to New York's playoff push as a middle-six forward. The 27 year-old has 13 goals, 22 assists, and 35 points in 56 games this season. If available in fantasy leagues, he should be added, given his new team. A good even-strength player, he also takes face-offs particularly well. Barron, just 23, serves as a gritty depth piece for Winnipeg and should be disregarded for fantasy. He has one point in 13 games this season.
Andrew Copp scored his eighth goal of the season in a 5-4 overtime win over Vegas. Copp had six SOG, one hit, and three blocks in 17:34 of ice-time.
Copp tallied his first point since December 5th against Toronto. Although he has cooled off, he is still worthy of a roster spot with 20 points in 30 games.
