Rangers acquire Benn Ferriero from Penguins for Chad Kolarik in swap of minor league forwards

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The Rangers acquired forward Benn Ferriero from the Pittsburgh Penguins for forward Chad Kolarik on Thursday.

Both players have been in the American Hockey League this season.

Ferriero has four goals and 14 assists in 34 games with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. Ferriero, chosen in the seventh round of the 2006 draft by Phoenix, has 14 goals and eight assists in 92 career NHL games over three seasons with San Jose.

Last season, he had a career-high seven goals in 35 games.

Kolarik has 16 goals and 19 assists in 41 games with Connecticut this season. Also a former draft choice by Phoenix, Kolarik was acquired from Columbus on Nov. 11, 2010.

The Rangers, who play at Philadelphia on Thursday night, also recalled Kris Newbury from Connecticut earlier in the day.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
