CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - The New York Rangers have acquired
forwards Olli Jokinen and Brandon Prust from the Calgary Flames for
forwards Christopher Higgins and Ales Kotalik.
The trade was announced by both teams shortly after the Flames were beaten 3-0 by the visiting Philadelphia Flyers on Monday night.
Jokinen, who was in the Calgary lineup against Philadelphia, has 11 goals and 24 assists in 56 games this season. Prust posted one goal and four assists in 43 games with the Flames. He is second in the NHL with 18 fighting majors.
The move helps the Rangers unload two players who failed to live up to expectations in their first season with New York.
