Nothing is going well for Alexis Lafrenière in New York: he has just reached the bottom of the barrel

The first overall pick in 2020, Alexis Lafreniere, has just hit rock bottom with the New York Rangers, as nothing seems to be working for him anymore with his team.

He was placed on the fourth line of his team today. He even rotated with another Quebecer, Samuel Blais, at today's practice.


If his arrival in the big league was somewhat below expectations, this season is no exception, while many anticipated an improvement in his third season in the NHL.

Let's just say that it's a huge disappointment for the 21-year-old, who is still trying to establish himself with the Rangers, with a record of only five goals and 17 points in 36 games.


It must be said that his lack of playing time is the talk of the town. For a team that grabbed him with the first overall pick not even three years ago, their plan seems less and less clear with their promising young player.

Is it possible that a divorce could happen soon between the Rangers and Lafreniere? It is a real possibility, especially since he still has a high value among NHL teams.

Many rumors mention that he could be the centerpiece of a potential trade involving star player Patrick Kane.

We should have more information on this subject in the coming weeks.
