Rangers claim D Roman Hamrlik, waived by Caps
The Rangers were looking for defensive depth and today---at least in part prodded by the puck to the face of Marc Staal---claimed Roman Hamrlik, 38, off waivers from the Capitals.
The 6-foot-2, 220-pound native of Czechoslovakia was a healthy scratch in 16 of 20 games, and was 2-11-13 with Washington last season. He also has played with Tampa, Edmonton, Calgary, Montreal and the Islanders.
