The New York Rangers pick up a serviceable defenseman in Christian Backman, who is signed through 2008-09, without giving up anything on the roster (the surrender a 4th round pick).

Backman, 27, who stands 6-foot-4 and weighs 198 pounds, averaged 19:22 of ice time for the Blues, who have dealt two defensemen Tuesday after signing Barret Jackman to an extension Monday night.
