The Edmonton Oilers acquired winger Justin Fontaine from the New York Rangers for winger Taylor Beck.

What does it give the Edmonton Oilers
Fontaine is probably more likely to see a little time in the NHL down the stretch. He is an Alberta native who can provide a little depth on the wing. The 29-year-old is a veteran of 197 NHL games.

What does it give the New York Rangers
The Rangers get a younger winger in the 25-year-old Beck, who is bigger than Fontaine but less of a scoring threat at the highest level. Look for him to spend the rest of 2016-17 with Hartford (AHL).

Fantasy impact
Neither Fontaine nor Beck have much in the way of NHL fantasy upside, but their value at the AHL level is proven and reliable.
