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

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
