Rangers add Newbury
The New York Rangers added depth at center by acquiring minor-leaguer Kris Newbury from the Detroit Red Wings, in exchange for AHL left wing Jordan Owens.

Newbury, 28, had 1 goal in four games with the Red Wings this season. In 52 games with the Wings' AHL affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins, he has 11 goals, 33 points and a team-leading 144 penalty minutes.

A 2002 fifth-round pick of the San Jose Sharks, he has 7 points and 64 penalty minutes in 48 games with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Red Wings.

Owens, 23, is an undrafted free agent in his third pro season. In 50 games with the Rangers' AHL team, the Hartford Wolf Pack, he has 6 goals and 19 points.
Quote of the Day

[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.

— Lightning forward Jonathan Drouin on linemate Steven Samkos
