Rangers Acquire Kyle Beach

kyle_beach_2013While the flipping of AHL forwards normally doesn’t raise eyebrows, this one does… a bit.

On Friday, the New York Rangers acquired Chicago farmhand Kyle Beach, the 11th overall pick at the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. In exchange, the Blueshirts sent Brandon Mashinter to the ‘Hawks.

Beach, 23, has spent his entire pro career with the Blackhawks’ AHL affiliate in Rockford. Last year, he scored 16 goals, with 10 assists, in 66 games while amassing 204 penalty minutes.
