GLENDALE, Ariz. - The New York Rangers have traded Finnish left-winger Lauri Korpikoski to the Phoenix Coyotes for Russian right-winger Enver Lisin.

The deal was announced Monday in Glendale, where the Coyotes are being funded by the NHL while a U.S. Bankruptcy Court determines who will own the team.

Korpikoski, 22, played in 68 games as a rookie for the Rangers last season and had six goals and eight assists. He added two assists in New York's seven-game loss to Washington in the first round of the playoffs.

Korpikoski was New York's first-round draft pick in 2004, the 19th choice overall.

Lisin, 23, was a third-round pick of the Coyotes in 2004. He had 13 goals and eight assists in 48 games with Phoenix last season.
