  • Rangers' Nick Holden: Protected in expansion draft

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/20/17) Holden is on the Rangers' protected list for Wednesday's expansion draft, the New York Daily News reports.

    He's thus relatively well established as a member of the Rangers' defensive corps heading into next season. Holden came to New York this past offseason looking like he was well on his way to adopting the label of journeyman blueliner, but he rewarded the Rangers with the finest season of his career, picking up 11 goals and 23 assists along with a plus-13 rating in 80 games. He managed that with marginal power-play time, too. Of course, his sky-high 13.1 shooting percentage (on a meager total of 84 shots) will be hard to replicate, so Holden will surely look to increase the quantity of pucks he puts on net next season.

    Rangers' Nick Holden: Opens scoring in Game 4

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/5/17) Holden opened the scoring in Thursday's Game 4 win over the Senators.

    It was a great move by Holden, who jumped up into the rush and deked out Craig Anderson in tight to give the Rangers a 1-0 lead. The 29-year-old scored 11 times in the regular season, but this was his first goal of the postseason. His production isn't ground-breaking, but Holden is a very reliable defenseman with offensive capabilities. With the Rangers having won back-to-back games and riding the momentum in the series, look for Holden to continue playing a key role on the blue line.

    Rangers' Nick Holden: Serving as healthy scratch Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/16/17) Holden will serve as a healthy scratch for the first time this season when the Rangers take on the Canadiens in Game 3 on Sunday, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.

    Holden has been a reliable force for New York this season and has played decently in the first two games of this first-round series, posting an assist, a minus-1 rating and nine hits while averaging 20:58 of ice time, so coach Alain Vigneault's decision to hold him out of this one is likely in an effort to keep Montreal guessing. Holden could very well draw back into the lineup for Game 4, but in the meantime, Kevin Klein will receive the nod on the third defensive pairing with Brendan Smith moving up to the second.

    Rangers' Nick Holden: Ready for action Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/9/17) Holden (undisclosed) will be in the lineup for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Penguins.

    Holden took the last two games off to rest his "bumps and bruises" and will use Sunday's contest as a final tune-up before the playoffs begin for the Blueshirts. He's slated to skate on New York's second defensive pairing with Marc Staal and will look to repeat his last performance against Pittsburgh when he recorded a goal and an assist.

    Rangers' Nick Holden: Won't play Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/5/17) Holden (undisclosed) won't suit up for Wednesday's game against Washington.

    Holden's absence is for maintenance reasons, so he'll be one of six Rangers sitting Wednesday's tilt out due to "bumps and bruises." However, the 29-year-old blueliner is fully expected to be ready for Game 1 of the playoffs. With Holden unavailable, Steve Kampfer will draw into the lineup against the Capitals.
