Werek was surprised by the trade. He was given a heads up by his agent Mark Guy on Sunday afternoon. Guy thought the trade would be completed by Monday or Tuesday. Guy works for Don Meehan and Pat Morris. Guy reps MDZ.
Werek hadn’t signed a contract with the Rangers since being drafted, but he did not think that factored into him being dealt. If he remained unsigned through next month, he would be thrown back into the pool for this year’s draft in Minnesota June 24 and 35.
As for leaving the Rangers organization, Werek said he harbours no regrets.
“New York was good to me. They drafted me and that’s where I started my NHL career,” he said. “But Phoenix is a great opportunity and I’m excited to be going there.”
Maloney is going to make Guy an offer later this week.
