Hajek will be a restricted free agent after putting up 10 points in 77 games with the Rangers over the past three years.

Hajek got the Rangers on the board at 10:23 of the second period. The 23-year-old defenseman has just two goals and an assist through 31 contests this season.

He's best left off fantasy rosters since he plays a limited role on the third pairing.
