Oilers acquire Justin Fontaine from Rangers for Taylor Beck

David Desharnais is excited to join an Oilers team with great offence and one of the game's best players in the world, but has cherished his time with the Montreal Canadiens.

The Edmonton Oilers have acquired forward Justin Fontaine from the New York Rangers in exchange for forward Taylor Beck.

Fontaine has spent the entire season in AHL Hartford, scoring nine goals and 30 points.

The 29-year-old played three seasons with the Minnesota Wild before signing with the Rangers this past October. He will become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Beck has 13 goals and 50 points in 40 games with AHL Bakersfield, and has appeared in three games with the Oilers this season.

The 25-year-old has 23 points (11 goals, 12 assists) in 90 career NHL games, almost all with Nashville.

He’ll become a restricted free agent this off-season.
