The Vancouver Canucks have traded forward Tyler Motte to the New York Rangers in exchange for a 2023 fourth-round pick, both teams announced Monday.

Motte, 27, has seven goals and eight assists in 49 games this season. The rugged center also has 90 hits and 51 blocked shots.

The Rangers made another splash in the trade market before the deadline, bringing in Andrew Copp from the Winnipeg Jets. The pair of additions figure to bolster the team’s bottom-six, but Copp is versatile enough that he can plug in anywhere in the lineup.
