(NEW YORK) — The New York Rangers have traded captain Ryan Callahan and a pair of picks to the Tampa Bay Lightning for Martin St. Louis.
The deal gives the Lightning a first-round draft pick in 2015 and a second-round pick in 2014.
Callahan has played his entire eight-year NHL career with the Rangers and has 11 goals and 25 points this season.
St. Louis has 29 goals, 32 assists, and 61 points this season. He was a member of the 2004 Stanley Cup team, but reportedly asked for a trade after being frustrated with the team.
Callahan had been seeking a long-term contract with New York.
