Right winger Anson Carter spoke briefly with the media shortly after finding out about the trade that sent him to New York.
"I guess it's a little bit shocking right now, but you always prepare to expect the unexpected in this league, especially on this day."
"I think the Rangers have a lot of upside. They're fighting for that last playoff spot and I'm excited to be helping them in the race."
"I'll just wait for Slats to tap my shoulder on the bench and try to help the team as much as possible."
