Rangers Trade Gaborik To Columbus

A stunner of a deal coming out of Ohio today — the Blue Jackets have acquired New York Rangers sniper Marian Gaborik.

The deal was pending as Gaborik held no-trade clause, which he waived.

The move is an absolute blockbuster for rookie GM Jarmo Kekalainen, who has only been on the job in Columbus since mid-February.

That said, New York’s return is plentiful. TSN’s Darren Dreger reports forwards Derek Brassard, Derek Dorsett and defenseman John Moore (plus a sixth-round pick in 2013) would be on their way to the Big Apple.
