Rangers acquire Shelley from Sharks

Friday, 02.12.2010 / 4:26 PM / 2010 Trade Deadline

By Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

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."

I didn't think it would actually work, but it ended up working, so I'm thanking my lucky stars tonight.
