In a deal undoubtedly designed only for the Hartford Wolf Pack, the New York Rangers completed a late trade this afternoon with their Metropolitan Division rivals, the Washington Capitals:
OFFICIAL: #NYR have acquired forward John Albert and defenseman Hubert Labrie from the Washington Capitals in exchange for Adam Chapie and Joe Whitney.

Chapie, 26, was signed as a free agent in April of 2016, and Whitney, 30, was signed to an AHL contract back in September of 2017.
None of the players involved in this deal are expected to make an NHL impact this season or going forward.
