The New York Rangers traded forward Ryan Bourque to the Washington Capitals for forward Chris Brown on Sunday.
Bourque, the son of Hockey Hall of Fame defenseman Ray Bourque, had 10 goals and 14 assists in 55 games for Hartford of the American Hockey League this season. He did not have a point in one game for the Rangers last season. Bourque was New York's third-round pick (No. 80) at the 2009 NHL Draft.
Brown had three goals and six assists in 20 games for Hershey of the AHL this season and was held without a point in one game with the Capitals. A second-round pick by the Phoenix Coyotes in 2009, Brown has two goals and one assist in 23 games between the Coyotes and Capitals.
The Rangers acquired forward Eric Staal from the Carolina Hurricanes earlier Sunday.
