In a bit of a surprising move, the Rangers have traded forward Brandon Mashinter to the Chicago Blackhawks for forward Kyle Beach. Mashinter. In ten total games with the Rangers over two seasons, Mashinter was held off the score sheet with ten PIMS. With Hartford this year, Mash had a line of 1-6-7 in 11 games with 15 PIMs.
Beach, currently with the Rockford Icedogs of the AHL, has a line of 4-0-4 in 7 games. Beach has no NHL experience.
This is a very minor move, as neither had much NHL experience. It is worth noting that Beach is a right handed shot. He will report to Hartford.
