Avery a Ranger

Here's the story

"The New York Rangers put in a claim for the buzz-worthy forward Tuesday and since no team below them in the standings did so by the noon ET deadline, the Blueshirts got their man and the rest of his four-year, $15.5 million contract at half the price. Dallas is on the hook for the other half, roughly $1.9 million per over the next three seasons.

Avery could practice with the Rangers as early as Wednesday and suit up for their game Thursday night on Long Island against the New York Islanders. He was playing for the Rangers’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack. He had 2 goals and 1 assist in eight games.

New York fit Avery like a glove in his first stint with the Rangers, who traded for him on Feb. 5, 2007. His agitating ways gave the Rangers energy. He had 23 goals, 30 assists and 212 penalty minutes in 86 games spread across two seasons."

Marty must be thrilled.
