Vitali Kravtsov's time in the Big Apple may come to an end before it really got going.

The New York Rangers have given the forward permission to contact other teams in pursuit of a trade after he was left off the season-opening roster, reports Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.

Kravtsov was unhappy that he didn't make the team, DailyFaceoff's Frank Seravalli added.

The Rangers selected Kravtsov ninth overall at the 2018 draft. The 6-foot-3 winger skated in 20 games with the Blueshirts last season, registering two goals and two assists while averaging 12:24 per contest.

Kravtsov also logged 49 games in the KHL last season, tallying 16 goals and eight assists with Chelyabinsk Traktor.
