Rangers acquire Bouchard from Capitals for Kundratek in swap of minor leaguers

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The injury-plagued Rangers acquired minor league forward Francois Bouchard from the Washington Capitals for minor league defenceman Tomas Kundratek.

New York has been playing without forwards Mike Rupp (knee) and Wojtek Wolski (groin), who are both scheduled for surgery this week.

The 23-year-old Bouchard, chosen by Washington in the second round of the 2006 draft, has yet to make his NHL debut. In 227 career games for Hershey of the AHL, the right winger had 49 goals and 112 points.

Kundratek, 21, is also waiting to make it to the NHL after being taken by the Rangers in the third round of the 2008 draft. He has played 77 games for Connecticut of the AHL, posting two goals and 12 assists.

Kundratek was sent to Hershey by the Capitals.
