Alexis Lafrenière was bond to being first pick after his incredible time in the QMJHL. He got drafted first in 2020 by the Rangers and everyone was convinced he was the next big player. Well, we just learned something about him, and it's not pretty. The Rangers' made it clear he will be a healthy scratch for tonight's game against Tampa. This is the first time this happens to him since his arrival in the big league. The last time he scored a goal was on Dec. 7th. Lafrenière recorded 17 points so far this season, but Gerard Gallant made everyone understand he expects way more from Laf.
