Rangers' Dryden Hunt: Struggling to score in bottom six

Hunt had one shot in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Islanders. Hunt brought his usual relentless forechecking in a bottom-six role, but his efforts often go unnoticed on the scoresheet. With just one point in his last 15 games, Hunt has become a non-factor offensively since the Rangers beefed up their depth at the trade deadline and bumped him out of a top-six role into a deployment better suited for his skill set.

Rangers' Dryden Hunt: Logs helper

Hunt notched an assist, three shots on goal and two hits in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Lightning. Hunt has picked up four assists in his last four games. The 26-year-old has dropped into a third-line role with the arrival of Frank Vatrano in a trade with the Panthers. Hunt's game is better suited to a checking-line role anyway -- he's at 15 points, 123 hits, 70 shots on net, 46 PIM and a minus-4 rating in 57 outings this season. The physicality could be of interest in deeper fantasy formats, but Hunt's not going to see much, if any, power-play time to boost his offense.

Rangers' Dryden Hunt: Sends trio of assists

Hunt notched three assists and went plus-2 in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Stars. Hunt was able to pick up some residual offense from Artemi Panarin's five-point game. This was just the second multi-point game of the season for Hunt, who has a goal and four helpers through six outings in March. The 26-year-old has seen some second-line usage at times this season, and he's up to 14 points, 65 shots on net, 120 hits, 46 PIM and a minus-5 rating through 54 appearances.

Rangers' Dryden Hunt: Lands on IR

Hunt (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Friday. The Rangers have yet to release a specific timetable for Hunt's return, but now that he's on IR, he'll miss the team's next three games at a minimum. The bottom-six winger has only picked up seven points through 35 contests this year, so most fantasy managers shouldn't need to keep tabs on his status.

Dryden Hunt has earned his place on the Rangers

When the Rangers offered him a free-agent contract this past summer, Dryden Hunt didn’t think twice before accepting it. For an undrafted guy like Hunt, who had been up and down between the NHL and the minor leagues, a two-year, one-way deal worth an average of $762,500 per year was a no-brainer.

Rangers' Dryden Hunt has made the most of his opportunity

Dryden Hunt wasn’t expecting to get good news when someone pulled him aside at the end of training camp and told him Rangers general manager Chris Drury wanted to see him. "On that day, I think no news is good news,’’ Hunt recalled. "I was trying to stay in the weeds and hopefully [hear] nothing. No one said anything to me, and I just came in the next day and someone tracked me down and said ‘Dru’ wanted to talk to me. And I said, 'Oh boy, here we go again.' And he called me in, and he's like, 'I like to give good news on this day.' … And then he said, 'You can actually go get a house.'’’

Rangers' Dryden Hunt: Lights lamp before ejection

Hunt scored a goal on two shots before being handed a five-minute major penalty and game misconduct, resulting in 15 PIM, in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Flyers. Hunt continued his strong play since being promoted to a line with Artemi Panarin and Ryan Strome, scoring his third goal in the last five games to put the Rangers up 2-0 in the opening frame. Funny enough, that ended up being the game-winning goal, even though Hunt was gone from the game well before its conclusion. He was assessed a five-minute major and game misconduct early in the second period for a hit on Justin Braun. Hunt tried to hold up and Braun turned into it a bit, but he ultimately connected right between the numbers and drew blood. The play was on the tame side as far as ejections go and Braun stayed in the game, so Hunt's unlikely to face any further discipline, which means he should be right back on a line with Strome and Panarin against the Sharks on Friday.
