The Rangers gave up Andrew Yogan who could have a bright NHL future in front of him. The 22 year old Yogan was taken in the 4th round of the 2010 draft. At 6’3″ and 200lbs, he has the size and speed to play center in the NHL.

In return the Rangers landed 31 year old journeyman forward Joey Crabb. The RW will assuredly be sent to Hartford immediately.
