The Rangers have acquired a fifth-round pick in the 2014 draft from the Florida Panthers in exchange for prospect Casey Wellman.

The 24-year-old forward was sent to New York in a trade with Minnesota for Erik Christensen and a seventh-round pick in 2013 this past season.

Wellman, a Brentwood, Calif., native, recorded 23 goals and 24 assists in 57 games in 2011-12 split between the Connecticut Whale and the Houston Aeros of the American Hockey League.
