Kevin Shattenkirk's time with the NHL's New York Rangers appears to be coming to an end.

Published reports say the club will buy out the 30-year-old defenceman's contract.

Shattenkirk has two years remaining on the four-year, $26.6-million pact he inked with the Rangers in July 2017.  The deal carries a cap hit of $6.65-million per season.

Because he has a no-movement clause in his contract, the Rangers aren't required to place him on unconditional waivers before buying him out.

Shattenkirk had 28 points in 73 games this past season.
