Rangers pick up defenseman Diaz from Canucks

Wednesday, 03.05.2014 / 3:19 PM | NHL.com Staff

The New York Rangers bolstered their blue line on Wednesday with the acquisition of defenseman Raphael Diaz from the Vancouver Canucks in a trade for a 2015 fifth-round draft pick.

Diaz, considered a second- or third-pairing defender, has now been a member of three teams in a little over a month. He was traded to the Canucks by the Montreal Canadiens for forward Dale Weise on Feb. 3.

Diaz, an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season, has one goal and 13 points in 52 games this season (46 with the Canadiens, six with the Canucks).
