The New York Rangers have acquired former first round pick Kyle Beach in a trade with the Chicago Blackhawks.

In return the Blackhawks receive forward Brandon Mashinter, who had no points in six games with the Rangers this season while totaling 10 penalty minutes.

Beach was selected 11th overall by the Blackhawks in the 2008 draft, but has never appeared in an NHL game. The 23-year-old forward has four goals in seven games with the AHL's Rockford IceHogs this season.
