Rangers claim D Hamrlik off waivers, wait news on Staal's eye injury

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The New York Rangers have claimed veteran defenceman Roman Hamrlik off waivers from Washington.

Hamrlik was selected first overall by Tampa Bay in 1992 and is the current active leader in NHL games played.

He has appeared in 1,383 regular-season games with Tampa Bay Edmonton, New York Islanders, Calgary, Montreal and Washington.

The three-time all-star has 155 goals and 483 assists in his career, good for third among active NHL defencemen.

The 38-year-old native of the Czech Republic has played only four games this season. He is in the final season of a two-year, US$7-million contract he signed in the summer of 2011.

He was placed on waivers by Washington on Tuesday.

Quote of the Day

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
