The Rangers have acquired Dan Carcillo from the Kings in exchange for a 7th round pick.
After losing Derek Dorsett to a broken fibula last night, the Rangers make what coach Alain Vigneault called a "low-risk" move by bringing in another fourth-liner in. Carcillo has appeared in 26 games with the Kings this season, he has one goal, one assist, a minus-1 rating and 57 PIMs.
Carcillo is “going to miss some time,” coach Joel Queneville said, after suffering a lower-body injury.
Carcillo was playing on the Hawks first line, which could have made him a fantasy option in deep leagues, but looks like he is going to miss sometime. Keep an eye on who they move up to the first line, playing with Toews increases anyones fantasy value.
The Hawks announced Friday that Carcillo will undergo reconstructive surgery on the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee Tuesday and will miss the remainder of the season as a result of the play.
Carcillo practiced yet again with the team and likely draws back in tomorrow night against the Blackhawks. If he does play, look for "Carbomb" to flank the top line. The pugilistic winger has two goals and nine points to go along with 60 PIM over 26 games.
