The Rangers will send a fifth round pick in 2014 to San Jose to complete their trade for Clowe. Had they re-signed Clowe, they would have sent their second round pick in 2014 to SJ.

Clowe said on TSN that it’s exciting for him to be a Devil. I went to NY and felt my game was coming around. I hit my stride in NY, I enjoyed it there. They had cap issues and I couldn’t go back there, but I had a great time and felt my game was coming back to me.”
