Rangers Trade Byers

I briefly touched on this last night, but yesterday the Rangers dealt away Dane Byers to the Columbus Blue Jackets. Here’s part of the Rangers official announcement

“New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has acquired forward Chad Kolarik from the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for forward Dane Byers.

Kolarik, 24, has registered four goals and six assists for 10 points, along with 18 penalty minutes in 13 games with the Springfield Falcons of the American Hockey League (AHL) this season. He ranks third on Springfield in scoring with 10 points, is tied for second in assists and ranks fourth in goals. He also leads the team and ranks 14th in the AHL with 46 shots on goal, and is tied for the team lead and ninth in the league with three power play goals.”

…was really hoping Byers would get a shot with the big club as the fourth line center this year, but Boyle obviously beat him out and we all know how well that’s working out for the Rangers. But still, I liked his toughness and I hope for the best for Byers.
