Why that could complicate the plans of the New York Rangers

Philip Shetel stood by his locker Friday morning, laughing and looking as relaxed as he had been in any of his five seasons with the New York Rangers.

How can he be blamed? The 23-year-old center was the team’s leading scorer in January – a total he would add later that night during a 4-1 win over the Vegas Golden Knights.

“I like to score goals,” Chitel said with a broad smile. “I can not lie”.

Eight count last month gave him 16 goals for the season. Thirteen have come on strong, leaving him one behind Chris Kreider to lead the team.
