The Penguins have announced that they have acquired forward Chad Kolarik from the New York Rangers in exchange for Benn Ferriero.
Ferriero has 4g, 14a this year for the Penguins AHL affiliate Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.
Ferriero has played 92 NHL games for the San Jose Sharks scoring 14g, 18a. He also scored the game-winning goal in overtime against the Detroit Red Wings in Game 1 of the Western Conference Semi-Finals in 2011.
Kolarik was second on the CT Whale in poinst with 35 (16g, 19a).
...what the? Huh? I was convinced Kolarik was going to have an impact for the Rangers this season. I guess Sather and co. didn't see him in their future plans.
...i know Kolarik isn't an all-star but I got to admit, I'm shocked with this move.
It's a curious move for sure. Kolarik had 31 points in 36 games with the Connecticut Whale this season and was named as an AHL All-Star. And he seemed destined for a call-up at some point this sea...
