MONTREAL - The Canadiens announced on Thursday that the team has acquired forward Adam Cracknell from the New York Rangers in exchange for forward Peter Holland. Cracknell will report to the Laval Rocket.
The Prince Albert, SK native has spent the majority of the 2017-18 season in the American Hockey League with the Hartford Wolfpack, where he has registered two goals and three points and a minus-5 differential to go with six penalty minutes in 15 games played. The 32-year-old right winger has also played four games with the Rangers this season, but was held pointless in those outings.
For his part, Holland has picked up eight goals and 10 assists in 20 AHL games with the Rocket this season. He joined the Canadiens' organization in July as an unrestricted free agent.
