Rangers Kotalik Waiting For A Trade

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

Ales Kotalik has left the Rangers after being told that he would be traded, The Post has learned.

Kotalik, the 32-year-old winger who was signed to a three-year, $9M free agent contract this summer, accompanied the Blueshirts to Phoenix for the first game of their three-game western tour but did not accompany his teammates here for tonight’s match against the Avalanche.

Head coach John Tortorella did not inform the media of Kotalik’s departure in his pre-game press briefing, only stating that the winger would be scratched for the eighth time in the last nine games.
