Wojtek Wolski has been traded to the Florida Panthers.
Wolski has no goals and three assists in nine games for the Rangers this season.
Although recently called back up to the Rangers after a two-week AHL conditioning stint with the Connecticut Whale, Wolski has remained a healthy scratch.
Wolski suffered a sports hernia injury early in the season and although he was able to play as early as December, he was kept out of the lineup on a consistent basis.
The Rangers acquired Wolski from the Phoenix Coyotes in early January of 2011 in a trade for former Rangers defenseman Michal Rozsival—a player many Rangers fans thought general manager Glen Sather could never dump thanks to his four-year, $20 million contract.
With Wolski off the Rangers' roster, $3.5 million has been cleared off the salary cap space.
