Jun 21, 2008 - 4:48 PM OTTAWA (Ticker) -- The Phoenix Coyotes acquired right wing Alex Bourret from the New York Rangers on Saturday for a third-round pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

With the pick, the 90th overall selection, the Rangers drafted defenseman Tomas Kundratek from Trinec of the Czech Republic.

Drafted 16th overall by Atlanta in 2005, Bourret was obtained by New York in February 2007. The 21-year-old spent last season with Hartford of the American Hockey League, recording nine goals and 24 assists in 54 games.

A native of Quebec, Bourret has yet to make his NHL debut.
