Rozzy Is Outta Here!!!! Strengthens Depth Up Front

One day after finding out left wing Alex Frolov is out for the season, the New York Rangers made a pretty significant move in an effort to replace him.

The Rangers acquired left wing Wojtek Wolski from the Phoenix Coyotes on Monday in exchange for defenseman Michal Rozsival. Wolski could be available when the Rangers play Tuesday night against the Montreal Canadiens at Madison Square Garden.

The 24-year-old Wolski has 6 goals and 10 assists in 36 games and should immediately fill the void left by Frolov, who suffered a season-ending knee injury Saturday against the St. Louis Blues. Wolski had 23 goals and 42 assists in 80 games split between the Coyotes and Colorado Avalanche last season.

It was a move the Rangers could afford to make because of their depth on the blue line.
