When Taylor Pyatt plays his first game for the Rangers he will join an exclusive club of players who have played for all three New York State teams.
Pyatt was drafted by the Islanders and played 78 games for them before being traded to Buffalo for Michael Peca. Pyatt spent four seasons with the Sabres.
Current Rangers goalie Marty Biron and Pat LaFontaine, Jason Dawe and Mike Donnelly are the only other players who have played for all three teams.
LaFontaine was drafted by the Islanders and played for them from 1984-1991 when he was traded to the Sabres (91-97). He spent 1997-98 with the Rangers scoring 62 points in 67 games.
Biron was with the Sabres Organization from 1995 to 2007 and played 29 games for the Isles in 2009-10.
Dawe played a total of 4 games with the Rangers, 25 with the Islanders and spent parts of seasons from 1994 to 1998 with Buffalo.
Donnelly played 22 games as a Rangers, 34 for the Sabres and 3 for the Islanders.
Thanks to Ralph for pointing this out.
