NHL Snap Shots: Clarkson, Rangers and Flyers Trade

David Clarkson's agent, Pat Morris, indicated that the unrestricted free agent will be listening to offers from teams other than the New Jersey Devils beginning at noon tomorrow according to NHL.com.  The 29-year-old forward is coming off a three-year $8 million contract with New Jersey.  Although he has always been a tough player, he has also added considerable goal-scoring ability to his resume of late.

As reported by foxsports.com, the New York Rangers have picked up defenseman Danny Syvret from the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for forward Kris Newbury.  Newbury saw action in six regular season games for the blueshirts this past campaign, notching one assist. The 31-year-old Newbury spent most of last season with the Connecticut Whale of the AHL, garnering a very respectable .89 points per game in 70 regular season appearances.  He is under contract through 2013-14 at a cap hit of $600,000.  

Syvret last saw NHL action with the Flyers, appearing in 4 regular season and 10 playoff contests in 2011.  Taking to the ice for the Adirondack Phantoms of the AHL, Syvret accumulated 40 points in 76 regular season games.  He is under contract through 2013-14 at a cap hit of $587,500.
