Top Alexis Lafreniere News

  • Rangers' Alexis Lafreniere: Adds two points in Game 5

    Lafreniere picked up a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Penguins.

    Lafreniere tied the game at two with his second-period goal before assisting on Filip Chytil's eventual game-winner in the third. The 20-year-old winger has points in three straight contests with two goals and two assists in that span. He'll look to stay hot as the Rangers try to even the series in Game 6.

  • Rangers' Alexis Lafreniere: Delivers assist in loss

    Lafreniere notched an assist and two hits in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Penguins in Game 3.

    Lafreniere set up Kaapo Kakko on the Rangers' first goal of the game. This was Lafreniere's first career playoff point in his third appearance. The 20-year-old winger had 31 points in 79 regular-season outings, though he showed more promise with 15 points in his last 28 contests. The Rangers' top six is pretty set when everyone's healthy, so the first overall pick from 2020 probably won't play above the third line.

  • Rangers' Alexis Lafreniere: Lights lamp twice against Wings

    Lafreniere scored two goals in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Red Wings.

    Both tallies came in the third period as the Rangers put the game away. Lafreniere snapped an eight-game point drought with the performance, and the 20-year-old hasn't yet lived up to his billing as the first overall pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, scoring 17 goals and 27 points through 73 games this season.

  • Rangers' Alexis Lafreniere: Two points in OT win

    Lafreniere scored a goal and an assist in Sunday's 5-4 overtime win over the Sabres.

    He lit the lamp late in the second period to tie the game at 3-3, then fed K'Andre Miller for the winner just over two minutes into OT. Lafreniere is starting to look like the player he was expected to become when he was taken with the first overall pick in the 2020 Draft. He's got a six-game points streak going, and over his last 16 contests the 20-year-old has five goals and 12 points.

  • Rangers' Alexis Lafreniere: Helpers in back-to-back games

    Lafreniere notched an assist and blocked two shots in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Lightning.

    Lafreniere set up Dryden Hunt for a shot, which led to a rebound for Jacob Trouba to bury at 9:25 of the second period. This gave Lafreniere an assist in each of the last two games. The 20-year-old winger is up to 20 points, 78 shots on net, 88 hits, 35 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 60 outings this season. He's still seeing most of his even-strength minutes in a top-six role, though he's struggled to be a consistent scorer.

  • Rangers' Alexis Lafreniere: Garners assist in low-scoring game

    Lafreniere supplied an assist in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Islanders.

    Lafreniere's ice time has been limited to a tick under 14 minutes per game, and he's mustered only one power-play point (an assist) through 115 career contests. Fantasy managers and Rangers fans alike undoubtedly expect more from the 2020 first overall pick, but then again, he's just 20 years old with plenty of room to grow.

  • Rangers' Alexis Lafreniere: Tallies in Sunday's loss

    Lafreniere scored a goal on two shots in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Canucks.

    Lafreniere got the Rangers on the board midway through the third period. The 20-year-old winger has collected four goals and an assist in his last eight outings. Considering he has just 16 points in 51 games overall, this counts as a bit of a warm stretch. Lafreniere has added 66 shots on net, 77 hits, 27 PIM and an even plus-minus rating this season.

  • Rangers' Alexis Lafreniere: Two points in home win

    Lafreniere had a goal, an assist and a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Capitals.

    Lafreniere left a drop pass for Mika Zibanejad in the opening period, and the center proceeded to blast it through Capitals goalie Ilya Samsonov at 100 miles per hour for the game's first goal. Lafreniere, the 2020 first overall pick, doubled the Rangers' lead by tipping a Ryan Lindgren shot past Samsonov in the middle frame. Lafreniere's blocked by Chris Kreider and Artemi Panarin at his natural left wing position, but his willingness to move to his off side has the 20-year-old winger skating in a top-six role. Three of his 11 goals have come in the last six games.

  • Rangers' Alexis Lafreniere: Clicking on top line

    Lafreniere scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 5-2 victory over the Panthers.

    Lafreniere has a two-game goal streak going, as he's made the most of his opportunity on the top line with Mika Zibanejad and Chris Kreider. The All-Star break may provide enough time for Kaapo Kakko (upper body) and Filip Chytil (lower body) to heal up, which could push Lafreniere back into a bottom-six role, though it's possible that he's earned a longer look in the top six with this recent production.

  • Rangers' Alexis Lafreniere: Back at it

    Lafreniere (not injury related) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Maple Leafs, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

    Lafreniere cleared the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Wednesday and will presumably return to a middle-six role and a spot on one of the Rangers' power-play units against Toronto. He's totaled eight goals and 11 points through 37 contests this season.

  • Rangers' Alexis Lafreniere: Clears protocols

    Lafreniere has cleared the NHL's COVID-19 protocols ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Maple Leafs, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

    Although Lafreniere's cleared the league's virus protocols, at this point it isn't clear if he'll be in the lineup against Toronto. If he's able to go, Lafreniere will likely draw into a middle-six role versus the Maple Leafs.

  • Rangers' Alexis Lafreniere: On protocols list

    Lafreniere was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Thursday.

    Lafreniere won't play Thursday versus the Sharks and will need to return two negative tests before he's cleared. Lauri Pajuniemi was called up from the taxi squad to take Lafreniere's place on the roster.

  • Rangers' Alexis Lafreniere: Goal and assist in win

    Lafreniere scored a goal on two shots, dished an assist, went plus-3 and added two hits in Monday's 4-1 win over the Oilers.

    Lafreniere opened the scoring at 5:25 of the first period, and he also set up Barclay Goodrow's second-period marker. With three points in four games since the holiday break, Lafreniere is looking more involved on offense. He's filled in for Artemi Panarin (COVID-19 protocols) on the second line in the last two games. For the season, Lafreniere is at eight goals, three assists, 43 shots on net, 53 hits and a plus-1 rating in 34 appearances.

  • Rangers' Alexis Lafreniere: Buries goal Friday

    Lafreniere scored a goal and added two hits in Friday's 4-3 shootout win over the Lightning.

    Despite getting the Rangers on the board in the second period, Lafreniere saw a season-low 8:47 of ice time. The goal snapped a five-game point drought for the 20-year-old. Lafreniere remains inconsistent on offense in a third-line role. He's at seven tallies, 39 shots on net, 51 hits, 13 PIM and a minus-3 rating through 32 contests.

  • Rangers' Alexis Lafreniere: Picks up assist Wednesday

    Lafreniere recorded an assist in Wednesday's 7-3 loss to the Avalanche.

    Offense remains inconsistent for the 20-year-old, as he has just two goals and an assist in his last 11 contests. Lafreniere set up a Filip Chytil goal in the third period Wednesday. Through 25 outings, Lafreniere has seven points, 34 shots on net, 41 hits and a minus-4 rating. Without more point production, he'll be stuck in a third-line role.

  • Rangers' Alexis Lafreniere: Snaps six-game point drought

    Lafreniere scored a goal on two shots, levied two hits and went plus-2 in Sunday's 4-3 shootout win over the Devils.

    Lafreniere had been kept off the scoresheet for six games prior to his second-period tally Sunday. The 20-year-old winger now has four goals, one assist, 24 shots on net, 27 hits and a minus-1 rating in 15 contests. He's still not showing enough consistency to be trusted in redraft formats, but that's likely due to being stuck on the third line and occasionally getting benched in-game by head coach Gerard Gallant.

  • Rangers' Alexis Lafreniere: One of each in win

    Lafreniere scored a goal on four shots, dished an assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Predators.

    Lafreniere helped out on a Filip Chytil goal just 2:12 into the game. In the third period, Lafreniere scored on a pass from Sammy Blais to give the Rangers the lead for good. A second-line role on his natural left-wing side has helped Lafreniere produce three points and 13 shots on net through five games. He's added nine hits, a plus-1 rating and four PIM, showing a bit of grit in addition to promising scoring potential from the 2020 first overall pick.

  • Rangers' Alexis Lafreniere: Nets winner in hometown

    Lafreniere scored the game-winning goal Saturday in a 3-1 win over Montreal.

    He finished a feed from Mika Zibanejad on a 2-on-1 in front of his family -- Lafreniere is from nearby Saint-Eustache. The goal came 26 seconds after the Habs had tied the game. Lafreniere and the Rangers will be in a fight for a playoff spot this season and the 20-year-old will play a prominent role.

  • Rangers' Alexis Lafreniere: Strong finish to rookie season

    Lafreniere scored a goal in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Bruins. The 2020 first overall pick finishes his rookie season with 12 goals and nine assists in 56 games.

    Lafreniere got off to a slow start but dressed for every game and got stronger as the season went along, racking up four goals and three assists in his last nine games. His goal Saturday was arguably the most impressive of Lafreniere's young career, as he went forehand-backhand in tight and roofed the puck past Tuukka Rask. Given his strong finish to the campaign, the 19-year-old winger seems poised to have a much greater fantasy impact in his second NHL season.

  • Rangers' Alexis Lafreniere: Delivers helper in win

    Lafreniere recorded an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Sabres.

    Lafreniere set up Mika Zibanejad for the opening goal 4:49 into the game. The 19-year-old Lafreniere has 17 points, 60 shots on net, 38 hits and a minus-4 rating through 49 contests. He's found more success in a top-line role lately after spending most of the first half of the campaign on the third line.
