New York Rangers: 3 Reasons the N.Y. Rangers Will Miss Brandon Dubinsky

In 2004 the New York Rangers selected Brandon Dubinsky in the second round of the 2004 NHL Draft.  He played his first game for the Rangers on March 8th, 2007, against the New York Islanders.

From there, Brandon Dubinsky immediately became a fan favorite with the Madison Square Garden faithful. Dubbed as “Dubi” by the fans, in his first four full seasons with the Rangers, fans saw the center improve in goal scoring and point production. However, at the end of the 2011-2012 season fans saw Brandon Dubinsky at his low point. In 77 games, he scored a career-low 10 goals and 34 points.

On July 23rd, 2012, Brandon Dubinsky along with Artem Anismov, Tim Erixon and a first-round pick in the 2013 draft, were all sent packing to the Columbus Blue Jackets, in exchange for Rick Nash, Steven Delisle and a conditional third-round pick in the same draft.

While the loss of Brandon Dubinsky may not be evident yet, when the season begins it will have an effect on the New York Rangers.
