NEW YORK, N.Y. - The Rangers have acquired defenceman Justin Falk from the Minnesota Wild on Sunday for the rights to forward Benn Ferriero and a sixth-round pick in next year's draft.

The 24-year-old Falk had three assists and 40 penalty minutes in 36 games last season with the Wild. He posted a plus or even rating 27 times and skated in his 100th NHL game on March 27 against Phoenix. Falk also played in four playoff games, making his post-season debut May 3 at Chicago in Game 2 of the first-round series.

In 108 regular-season games over four seasons, the 6-foot-5 Falk has one goal, 14 assists and 100 penalty minutes.

The 26-year-old Ferriero is a restricted free agent. He had one assist in four games with the Rangers last season after being acquired from Pittsburgh on Jan. 24. The draft choice going to the Wild originally belonged to Columbus.
