Tony DeAngelo has played his last game for the Rangers

Tony DeAngelo has played his last game with the Rangers, general manager Jeff Gorton told Monday.

DeAngelo, the gifted but hot-headed defenseman, cleared waivers on Monday after being designated following a postgame confrontation with goaltender Alexandar Georgiev after Saturday’s overtime loss to the Penguins.

The Rangers assigned DeAngelo to their taxi squad, and are expected to try to trade the 25-year-old.

A first-round pick of the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2014, DeAngelo’s production — including an impressive 53 points in 68 games last season — has consistently taken a backseat to negative attention-drawing antics.

DeAngelo has been suspended multiple times throughout his hockey career.

He signed a two-year, $9.6 million extension last offseason with the Rangers, his third team since being drafted.
