The New York Rangers have announced that they have acquired enforcer Dan Carcillo from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for a conditional seventh round selection in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

The 28-year-old forward has two points and 57 penalty minutes in 26 games with the Kings this season. He recorded at least 200 penalty minutes in three straight campaigns from 2007-08 through 2009-10. The main reason he’s fallen short of that mark since is because he’s been limited to a maximum hasn’t played in more than 57 in any of his previous three campaigns.

Carcillo spent two seasons with Chicago, but was plagued by injuries and his role with the team declined over time. He played in just four postseason contests during the Blackhawks’ 2013 Stanley Cup run.

Afterwards they shipped him to Los Angeles to rid themselves of his $825,000 annual cap hit.
