TSN’s Bob McKenzie reports the deal is done; Wojtek Wolski to Florida for minor-league defenceman Mike Vernace and a 3rd round pick in 2013. I left the Canadian spelling of defenceman in there for your enjoyment.
The Rangers did not put Wolski on waivers today, which was a hint that they had a deal going for him. Otherwise they would have had him on waivers so he could clear by Monday and come off the books in the event that they made a trade that would require the salary cap space. They would then assign him to Connecticut (AHL).
Now his $3.8M comes off via trade.
