Rangers' Shesterkin suffers broken rib in vehicle accident

By coming to terms on a seven-year deal that carries a $6.5 million cap hit, NY found that with Kreider.

"There was lots of dialogue; this has gone on for a few days", Davidson said.

The Swede had 116 points (28 goals, 88 assists) in four seasons with the Blackhawks after being selected No. 93 overall in the 2012 NHL Draft. Kreider was a 2009 first-round draft pick and has played his entire career with NY. Buchnevich is listed as day-to-day.

Goaltender Igor Shesterkin, who was driving, broke a rib and will be reevaluated in two weeks.

Both players were wearing seat belts and were brought to NY Presbyterian.

The Rangers recalled Shesterkin from AHL Hartford on January 6, and he has a 9-1-0 record with 2.23 goals against average and.940 save percentage in 10 games.

As for the Kreider deal, Davidson said both sides worked hard to get it done.

"In our business, you're certainly dealt curveballs all the time", Davidson said. "That's a tough curveball that we have to deal with".

The Hurricanes have Toronto's first-round pick in addition to their own, and will have the option of choosing which pick to send to the Rangers when the season is over.

Buchnevich has 14 goals and 23 assists in 61 games this season.
