Ann Arbor native, ex-Wolverine Andrew Copp shining in NHL playoffs

NEW YORK, NY – NHL teams trading draft picks to acquire players to gear up for a Stanley Cup playoff run can be risky.

The New York Rangers trading two conditional second-round picks and a sixth-round pick for former Michigan forward Andrew Copp at the March 21 deadline appears to have been worth the gamble.

The Ann Arbor native continued his strong postseason Tuesday, recording a goal and two assists to help the Rangers beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-1 and tie the best-of-seven second-round series at 2-2.
