Duclair, 19, is widely considered a top prospect. In 18 games, he recorded seven points (one goal, six assists) with the Rangers.

The two teams played last Thursday, with the Rangers picking up a 4-3 win.

The Rangers (38-17-6) trail the New York Islanders by two points for first place in the Metropolitan Division.
