Penguins make minor trades with Rangers, Stars
Share with others:
The Penguins have made two minor trades, acquiring forward Chad Kolarik from the New York Rangers in exchange for forward Benn Ferriero and getting a conditional draft pick from the Dallas Stars for defenseman Carl Sneep.
Kolarik, 26, was a seventh-round draft pick by Phoenix in 2004. He has been assigned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League.
He had 16 goals, 36 points in 41 games with Connecticut of the AHL this season after missing all of last season because of a knee injury.
Ferriero was signed as a free agent last February and has spent his time with the organization with Wilkes-Barre.
Sneep, 25, was a Penguins second-round draft pick in 2006 but had fallen far down the organizational depth chart. He has spent most of this season with Wheeling of the ECHL.
