Rangers acquire defenseman Brendan Smith from Wings

Brendan Smith has been dealt to the New York Rangers in exchange for a couple of draft picks.

However, it's hard to see any of those picks helping the Red Wings to a better season right away.

The return is a pretty solid one for general manager Ken Holland and the Red Wings, who will likely see their playoff streak end at 25 seasons.

With the Smith deal done, forwards Thomas Vanek, Steve Ott, and Riley Sheahan remain tied to the rumor mill.

Multiple media outlets are reporting the picks would be second- and third-round selections in the 2017 entry draft. He had career highs in goals (five) and assists (14) during the 2013-14 season, his first full year in the National Hockey League.

Dunkin' Brands Group comprises 2.0% of Tricadia Capital Management LLC's holdings, making the stock its 18th largest position. The company reported $2.03 EPS for the quarter, topping the Thomson Reuters' consensus estimate of $1.90 by $0.13.

Detroit drafted Smith in the first round in 2007 and the feisty player has 67 career points in 291 games.

Dan Girardi will be shut down for about two weeks, Alain Vigneault said Tuesday morning, because the wound on his right ankle from blocking a shot on February 7, which kept him out the next two games, hasn't properly healed.

In 33 games this season, Smith has five points (two goals, three assists) in just over 18 minutes of average ice time this season.

Kevin Klein will miss his fourth straight game Tuesday night after tweaking his back Thursday morning, but Vigneault hopes Klein will skate on Wednesday before the Rangers travel to Boston.
