Rangers trade Grachev to Blues; draft Fogarty with pick (updated)

The Rangers traded Evgeny Grachev to St. Louis for the Blues’ third-round pick, and selected Steven Fogarty.
Will have more later.
My take: Wow. Gave up kind of early on Grachev. But then again, they’ve seen him close up for a couple of years, and I haven’t.
Update, 12:45 p.m.: The Rangers selected center Michael St. Croix with the fourth-round pick (No. 106). He had 27-48-75 for Edmonton of the WHL last season. More in a bit.
And of course, NHL Network completely missed the selection, didn’t it?
Update, 1:20 p.m.: With their two fifth-round picks, the Rangers selected RW Shane McColgen of Kelowna in WHL and big, rugged defenseman Samuel Noreau (6-4, 206) of Baie Comeau, QMJHL.
McColgen is 5-foot-8 and had 21-45-66 in 67 games last season.
Update, conclusion of draft: The Rangers traded their 2012 6th round pick to Nashville for the Preds’ 6th round pick and selected D Peter Ceresnak (Slovaki-Jr. Trencin) with the 172nd pick.
Also, Glen Sather told reporters that Grachev and his agent had requested as trade and that the team tried to shop him all year.
