The Rangers traded Emerson Etem to the Vancouver Canucks for forward Nicklas Jensen and a 6th round pick in the 2017 NHL Draft.
Jensen was assigned to Hartford. He was the 29th overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, when Rangers coach Alain Vigneault was head coach of the Canucks.
Etem had three assists in 19 games with the Rangers. The Blueshirts host Washington at The Garden this afternoon.
