In exchange, the Rangers have given up their eighth-round pick in 2020 and a fifth-round pick in 2022 as well as Ottawa’s third-round pick in 2024.

“We are excited to welcome Holden to the Rangers. His skating and puck-moving ability will be a welcome addition to our team and a player that can fit nicely with our style of play,” Rangers interim coach and general manager Mike McKenzie stated.
