New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has acquired forward Kyle Beach from Chicago in exchange for forward Brandon Mashinter.

Beach, 23, was originally selected by Chicago as a first round choice, 11th overall, in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. The North Vancouver, British Columbia native has registered four goals and a plus-three rating in seven games with the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League (AHL) this season. He notched his first career hat trick on November 30 against Chicago, including a shorthanded goal, and has registered four goals in his last two games. Beach made his season debut with Rockford on November 1 at Milwaukee after skating in seven games with HV71 Jönköping of the Swedish Hockey League (SHL). He registered two goals and one assist, along with 35 penalty minutes in seven games with HV71.

The 6-3, 208-pounder has skated in 169 career AHL contests over six seasons with Rockford, registering 41 goals and 35 assists for 76 points, along with 422 penalty minutes. Beach established career-highs in games played (71), goals (16), assists (20), points (36), and shots (164) during the 2010-11 season. Last season, he tied his career-high with 16 goals, and added 10 assists for 26 points in 66 games. Beach made his professional debut on April 10, 2009 against Peoria, and notched his first professional point with a goal on October 9, 2010 against Manitoba. In addition, Beach has tallied three goals in five career playoff contests with Rockford.

Mashinter, 25, has registered one goal and six assists in 11 games with the Hartford Wolf Pack (AHL) this season. He has also skated in six games with the Rangers.
