SUNRISE, Fla. ­ Florida Panthers Executive Vice President & General Manager Dale Tallon announced today that Florida has acquired LW Wojtek Wolski from the New York Rangers in exchange for D Mike Vernace and a third-round pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

"We are very pleased to have acquired Wojtek," said Tallon. "He is a skilled forward with scoring ability who will fit in very well to our lineup."
