The New York Rangers have re-acquired the seventh round pick for this month’s draft, which they initially sent to Tampa Bay in the Martin St. Louis deal last season.

In exchange, the Lightning receive prospect Daniel Walcott.

Walcott finished his second season in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League this year with the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada. The 5-foot-11, 165-pound, blue liner had seven goals and 41 points in 54 regular season games.

The 21-year-old also appeared in one American Hockey League game with the Hartford Wolf Pack registering a minus-1 rating.

Walcott was originally the Rangers fifth round selection (140th overall) in 2014.
