Isles claim Eric Cairns from Rangers
Wed. Dec. 23, 1998.
The New York Islanders claimed defenseman Eric Cairns on waivers from the division rival New York Rangers yesterday. The 6'5, 230-pound Oakville, Ontario, Canada native was drafted 72nd in the 1992 NHL Draft. While one of the few tough players on the Rangers, he may have become dispensable after the Rangers claimed defenseman Rumun Ndur from the Sabres last week.
