SAINT PAUL, Minn. – Minnesota Wild General Manager Chuck Fletcher today announced the National Hockey League (NHL) club has acquired a sixth-round pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft and the rights to restricted free agent forward Benn Ferriero from the New York Rangers in exchange for defenseman Justin Falk.
Ferriero, 26 (4/29/87), recorded one assist in four games with the New York Rangers in 2012-13 and recorded 30 points (8-22=30) in 57 American Hockey League (AHL) contests with Connecticut and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
Falk, 24 (10/11/88), collected three assists and 40 penalty minutes (PIM) in 36 regular season games with the Wild in 2012-13 and appeared in four playoff contests. He compiled 15 points (1-14=15) and 100 penalty minutes (PIM) in 108 career NHL games with Minnesota. Falk was originally selected by the Wild in the fourth-round (No. 110 overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

In a minor trade, the Rangers have sent forward Kris Newbury to Philadelphia for left-handed defenseman Danny Syrvet. Syvret, who was a teammate of Dan Girardi’s with London in the OHL, is essentially the defensive version of Newbury. Both players are solid at the AHL level, but neither can gain solid footing in the NHL. They are your quintessential AAAA players.
Newbury was never...
The Wild are up against a wall this offseason. They need to find a little cap space, which they would do by letting go of Dany Heatley using something called a compliance buyout, but they can’t do that because he had shoulder surgery and is on the isable list. They needed to find another way to stock their roster and to get their payroll down.
The team needed to make a decision...

The Rangers looked like they were going to make a serious run at contending for a Stanley Cup until they ran into Boston in the Eastern semis. Henrik Lundqvist led the team from between the pipes but a lack of offense and a poor power play kept the Rangers from going deeper into the playoffs. Let’s take a look back at the Broadway Blueshirts.
Team Name:New York Rangers
The decision not to buyout Brad Richards has been made, so there's really no sense in getting worked up about it anymore. We all know the huge risk Glen Sather took and we just have to pray the Rangers alternate captain can bounce back while staying healthy.
And it looks like he's already focusing on next season as Pierre LeBrun at ESPN.com reports that Richards has been...
With the Rangers trading away this year's first and second round picks in the Rick Nash & Ryane Clowe trades respectively, Gordie Clark and his crew are going to be twiddling their thumbs for a long time before finally using the first of the Blueshirts three third round picks during tomorrow's draft.
But Clark still has a game plan going into the day (via Blueshirts...
Last night was a different one for the New York Rangers. You have to go back to 2002 to find the last time the team did not hold a first round pick, but never, since the NHL Entry Draft came into existence, have the Rangers been without both a first and a second round pick. Nonetheless, Rangers Director of Player Personnel Gordie Clark has proven time and time again that NHL players...

It’s shaping up to be a crazy day around the NHL. The Rangers don’t have first- or second-round picks thanks to trades for Rick Nash and Ryane Clowe, but they do hold three picks in the third round (#65, #75 and #80 overall). It’s quite possible that New York will attempt to package a couple of those picks to move up into the second round, but don’t hold your breath on the...

This news broke yesterday, courtesy of Alex Nunn and his translation abilities (via this Swedish website), but we wanted to keep the focus on the draft. Former Ranger defenseman Ulf Samuelsson will be re-joining the Rangers as an assistant coach, working with the defense and penalty kill. Ulfie has spent the past two seasons coaching Modo in the SHL (renamed from the SEL).
