The Washington Capitals completed a swap of minor-leaguers today, sending RW Francois Bouchard to the New York Rangers for D Tomas Kundratek.  Bouchard was the Capitals' 2nd round pick in 2006 and is the younger brother of Minnesota Wild playmaker Pierre-Marc Bouchard.  He never lived up to his billing as an offensive playmaker, regressing last season with the AHL Hershey Bears.  He never appeared in the NHL with the Capitals.

Kundratek, 21, is a 6'2, 201 pound native of the Czech Republic.  He spent last season with the Connecticut Whale of the AHL after coming over to the WHL for the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons.  A defensive defenseman, he was the Rangers ' 3rd round pick in the 2008 Entry Draft.
