Rangers send slumping forward Gaborik to Blue Jackets in 2nd big deal between clubs since July

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The New York Rangers have traded slumping forward Marian Gaborik to the Columbus Blue Jackets in the second trade of star players between the teams within the past year.

Gaborik was dealt to the Blue Jackets Wednesday, just before the NHL's afternoon trade deadline, for centre Derick Brassard, right wing Derek Dorsett and defenceman John Moore.

Gaborik waived a no-movement clause in order to allow the deal to be completed.

It was the second big trade for the playoff-hopeful Rangers in two days. On Tuesday night, the New York acquired forward Ryane Clowe from the San Jose Sharks for a package of three draft picks.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
