NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — The injury-depleted New York Rangers are getting a reinforcement, acquiring forward Wojtek Wolski from the Phoenix Coyotes for veteran defenseman Michal Rozsival.

The Rangers, already missing Ryan Callahan and Erik Christensen up front, lost forward Alex Frolov to a season-ending knee injury when he was hurt Saturday night in a victory at St. Louis. That spurred the deal completed Monday.

The 24-year-old Wolski — a left wing — has six goals and 10 assists in 36 games this season with Phoenix. However, he has only three points in 17 games. Last season, he had career highs with 23 goals, 42 assists and 65 points in 80 games split between Colorado and Phoenix, while posting a plus-21 rating.

Rozsival has been with the Rangers since signing as a free agent in August 2005.
