Yandle makes debut with Rangers; Zuccarello gets 4-year deal

NEW YORK (AP) — One day Keith Yandle was at a kid’s birthday party in Arizona, and way out of the Stanley Cup playoff chase.

The next, he stared down the bright lights of Broadway and stepped into the thick of the fight. The All-Star defenseman couldn’t be happier.

Yandle was acquired by the New York Rangers from the Arizona Coyotes on Sunday in a deal that should improve his new team’s power play, which was in need of a puck-moving defenseman.
