Rangers get Crabb from Panthers

NEW YORK -- The Rangers have acquired forward Joey Crabb from the Florida Panthers in a trade that opens up a roster spot for emerging teenage forward Anthony Duclair.

The Rangers are sending defenseman Steven Kampfer and forward Andrew Yogan to the Panthers in the deal announced Monday. This move allows the Rangers to keep the 19-year-old Duclair on the roster that will open the season Thursday at St. Louis.

Each team can have a maximum of 50 contracts in the organization.

Duclair, chosen as the Rangers' top rookie in training camp, had a goal in both preseason games last week against Philadelphia, led the club with five points, and tied for the lead with three goals while playing in five of six games.
