The Rangers have acquired forward Nicklas Jensen and a sixth round pick in 2017 in exchange for forward Emerson Etem. Etem was recently sent on a conditioning assignment to the AHL, as he had fallen out of favor with the Rangers.

Jensen, a 2011 first round pick, has not made an impact with the Canucks. The winger has played just 24 games with the Canucks. He has a line of 4-8-12 in 27 games with the Utica Comets this season.

The Rangers will shed Etem’s $850,500 cap hit. Jensen will report to The Hartford Wolf Pack.
