The New York Rangers added depth along the blue line Wednesday, acquiring defenseman Anders Eriksson from the Phoenix Coyotes in return for goaltending prospect Miika Wiikman and a seventh-round draft pick in 2011.

Eriksson is an 11-year veteran who was part of the Detroit Red Wings' Stanley Cup championship in 1998. He has 0 goals and 3 assists in 12 games with the Coyotes this season. He signed with the Coyotes as a free agent on Dec. 21.

In 564 career games, the 35-year-old has 22 goals and 152 assists.
Quote of the Day

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
