The Rangers have traded Marian Gaborik to Columbus for Derek Dorsett (who is out for the season with a broken collarbone), John Moore and Derick Brassard and a sixth-round draft pick.
Brassard, 25, is a center with some skill; Dorsett is a little but very tough winger, and Moore, 20, is a big, mobile defenseman.
Gaborik will enter the final season of his contract next year, at $7.5 million.
More as it comes.
Quick thought: This is a really bad deal for the Rangers who now are back to one legitimate first-line forward (unless you believe Brad Richards will bounce back at some point before being bought out).
