The Minnesota Wild have dealt defenseman Justin Falk to the NY Rangers in exchange for Benn Ferrairo and a sixth-round pick in 2014.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: The Wild couldn’t afford to re-sign the 24-year-old Falk, a restricted free agent who earned $825K this season. Ferrairo is also a restricted free agent but is likely to be signed to a two-way contract with the Wild.
A good, affordable move by the Rangers adding a young blueliner with upside. Could this move foreshadow another Rangers trade in which they move out one of their blueliners, like Michael Del Zotto? We’ll find out in due course.
