Rangers acquire John Mitchell from Leafs

Mitchell, 26, played 23 games for the Leafs, with two goals and an assist, and was playing for the Marlies of the AHL.

The Rangers gave up a seventh-round pick for Mitchell, who may start off in Connecticut with Kris Newbury currently up as the 13th forward.

A very quiet day for the Rangers, who never got close enough with the Stars on Brad Richards to even have Dallas GM Joe Nieuwendyk ask Richards to waive his no-trade clause. Richards' camp never heard a thing from the Stars all day.

So the chase for Richards will resume on July 1, and the Rangers go forward as is.
