Rangers Trade Wolski to Florida

We’re about 48 hours away from the 2012 NHL Trade Deadline, and the Rangers have made their first move, dealing forward Wojtek Wolski to the Florida Panthers for a 2013 third-round pick and minor league defenseman Mike Vernace, according to TSN’s Bob McKenzie.

This season, Wolski, 26,  had no goals and three assists in just nine games for the Rangers. He was injured in training camp and early in the season, and never found a regular spot in the lineup. He was acquired last season for defenseman Michael Rozsival from the Phoenix Coyotes.

In 37 games for the Rangers, he had six goals and 19 points.

A quick Google search shows Vernace is nothing special.

The Rangers were either going to waive or trade Wolski, so good for him that it was the latter and not the former. The kid has all the skill in the world, but can’t really get it together. At 26, the Panthers will be his fifth team since 2009-10. Something has to click with this guy before he’s traded again.
