NEW YORK (AP) - The Rangers have traded defenseman Nick Holden to the Boston Bruins for a minor league defenseman and a third-round pick in the 2018 draft.

Holden skated in 135 games with the Rangers over parts of two seasons (2016-17 and 2017-18). He had 14 goals and 32 assists for 46 points, along with 49 penalty minutes. He will be an unrestricted free agent after this season.

Defenseman Rob O’Gara went to New York in Tuesday’s deal with Boston, which entered the day in a tight race with Tampa Bay for first place in the Atlantic Division.

The Rangers might deal other players such as forward Rick Nash and defenseman Ryan McDonagh before Monday’s trade deadline. They have seven picks for the 2018 draft.
