Rangers make minor league moves involving Dustin Tokarski
This past Thursday the Wolf Pack and Charlotte Checkers made some roster moves. Pack goaltender Dustin Tokarski was assigned to the Charlotte Checkers and the Checkers assigned defenseman Josh Wesley to Hartford. In other terms, this was a “trade”. The difference between loans and a trade is that the players who are traded, their original teams still have their rights.
Essentially an AHL trade, the move is technically an exchange of loaned players, meaning that the Carolina Hurricanes still hold the NHL rights to Wesley and the New York Rangers still hold the NHL rights for Tokarski.Nicholas Niedzielski
The frequent changes to Hartford’s roster continues. The purge of veterans is an indication that the Rangers are done with the 2018-19 AHL season. We are now building for the upcoming season.
Hartford adds Josh Wesley, a 22 year old who has played in 39 games with the Florida Everblades, recording four goals, 10 assists for 14 points. The defenseman also participated in six games with Charlotte. More moves could be possible as the AHL trade deadline is at 3pm on Monday.
