The New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins have agreed on a minor trade Thursday morning involving two players. The Rangers have agreed to send forward Chad Kolarik to the Penguins for F Benn Ferriero, according to TSN.ca.
Ferriero, 25, has played 92 career games over three seasons, all with the San Jose Sharks. He’s scored 14 goals and added 8 assists while compiling 25 penalty minutes throughout his career. Ferriero signed with the Penguins as a free agent on July 13.
Originally drafted in the 7th round of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft by the Phoenix Coyotes before signing with San Jose as a free agent in 2009.
Meanwhile, heading to the Penguins is forward Chad Kolarik, a former 7th round pick in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. A career minor-leaguer, Kolarik has only appeared in 6 career games, split between the Columbus Blue Jackets and the aforementioned Rangers. He registered one assist on those games.
