Washington Capitals trade winger Richard Zednik to New York Islanders @NHLdotcom

UNIONDALE, N.Y. (CP) - The New York Islanders have acquired winger Richard Zednik from the Washington Capitals in exchange for a second-round draft pick in 2007.

"Richard is a proven offensive talent," Islanders GM Garth Snow said in a statement. "When you can add a player with his skill and competitiveness for a playoff push at a fair cost, you do it. We believe Richard will fit in well with our team."

Zednik will be an unrestricted free agent July 1 and was unable to come to terms on an extension with the Capitals.

The 31-year-old Slovak had 18 points (6-12) in 32 games with the Caps, missing half the season through injury.
