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

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
