Rangers acquire Shelley from Sharks
The New York Rangers have acquired forward Jody Shelley from the San Jose Sharks for a conditional 2011 draft pick.
The New York Rangers added a different physical element to their lineup Friday, acquiring forward Jody Shelley from the San Jose Sharks for a conditional 2011 draft pick.

The move comes on the same day the Rangers waived Donald Brashear.

Shelley, 34, had 3 assists 78 penalty minutes in 36 games for the Sharks. In nine NHL seasons with Columbus and San Jose, he has 43 points and 1,310 penalty minutes.

Brashear, who signed a two-year contract over the summer, had been a healthy scratch in seven-straight games. In 36 games, he had 1 assist and 73 penalty minutes.

Shelley will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1. If the Rangers don't re-sign him, they'll give the Sharks their 2011 sixth-round pick. If Shelley stays with the Rangers, they'll have to give the Sharks their 2011 fifth-round pick.

"Jody Shelley has been a tremendous competitor and teammate for this organization for the past three seasons," said Sharks GM Doug Wilson. "He strived to make a difference on and off the ice in San Jose and he was a leader in both areas."

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
