from Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post,

In this salary-cap squeeze, Kevin Shattenkirk was the casualty.

The Rangers plan to buy out the remaining two years of the 30-year-old’s contract at $6.65 million per season, The Post has learned. In what was a confusing couple days when the exact buyout window wasn’t clear to most around the league, the Blueshirts’ intentions were.

This will now leave the Rangers with four years of dead cap space, but will give them quite a bit of relief this coming season. Having been into the summer allowance over the $81.5 million salary-cap ceiling, the Rangers will now carry a hit for Shattenkirk of $1.483 million this season, making them immediately compliant. It will be followed by the big hit of $6.083 million in 2020-21, and then the next two seasons he would count for $1.433 million, all according to CapFriendly.com.
