Hours after announcing the signing of Ryan Callahan, the New York Rangers have agreed to trade left winger Lauri Korpikoski for right wing player Enver Lisin.

Korpikoski appeared in 68 games with the Rangers last season recording a 6-8-14 with 14 PIM. Korpokowski also collected two assists in seven playoff games for the Rangers.

Korpikoski was selected in the first round of the 2004 NHL entry draft.

Lisin went 14-8-21 in 48 contests for the Phoenix Coyotes last season.

Lisin is considered a two way skater with good speed and a nice shot. He has room to improve on both sides of the pucks.
