TORONTO (AP) — The New York Rangers acquired tough guy Dan Carcillo from the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday for a seventh-round pick in the 2014 draft.
Carcillo fills a role for New York, which lost Derek Dorsett to a broken left fibula for four to six weeks.
“We pick up a player that can bring an element of toughness,” coach Alain Vigneault said Saturday afternoon before the Rangers game against the Maple Leafs. “It’s an area that we felt that we needed to get a little bit better. Dan became available and we picked him up.”
Carcillo appeared in 26 games this season for Los Angeles, getting a goal and an assist with 57 penalty minutes.
