NY Rangers and Ryan McDonagh Agree to 6-Year, $28.2 M Contract

Jul 8 2013, 8:33pm CDT | by

Restricted free agent Ryan McDonagh agreed to a six-year deal reportedly worth $28.2 million with the New York Rangers on Monday.

Defenseman Ryan McDonagh will remain a New York Ranger for the next six years.

CBS New York cites a report from Larry Brooks of the New York Post who says McDonagh agreed to a six-year contract which is valued at $28.2 million, carrying an annual cap hit of $4.7 million. 

McDonagh, who is getting married in two weeks, says it was the right fit for him.

"I was hoping they were thinking multiple years, like this worked out. It was the right fit for me."

USA Today Sports' Harry Hawkings confirms this deal makes McDonagh the highest-paid defenseman on the Rangers roster. The 24-year-old chipped in with four goals and 15 assists in the 2012-13 NHL season. 

He was also 21st among the league's defensemen in average ice time at 24 minutes, 21 seconds per game according to Hawkings.  

As of July 8, the Rangers have $6.5 million in salary cap space which will be used to try to have free agents Derek Stepan and Carl Hagelin re-sign with the team. They can also use the cap space to sign another defenseman, former Minnesota Wild player and restricted free agent Justin Falk, to a contract.  

McDonagh is a native of St. Paul, Minn. who was selected with the 12th overall pick by the Montreal Canadiens in the 2007 NHL draft.
