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.

New York Rangers v Calgary Flames
Since coming up short in the 2014 Stanley Cup Final, it seems that it has been all fire and brimstone for the New York Rangers, and their success this past season has been looked at as lucky and fortunate. Critics have said the Rangers are lucky the Montreal Canadiens beat the Boston Bruins. While that may be true, most critics thought the Rangers wouldn't beat the Pittsburgh Penguins, and when they were successful, they were written off against the Canadiens. The ...

Getting to know Anton Stralman, the Rangers' unsung hero on defense

Jun 13 2014 12:56pm CDT | Source: SBNation

New York Rangers v Calgary Flames
Playing on the Rangers' second defensive pairing, Anton Stralman has long gone unnoticed. But that time is over. NEW YORK -- If Anton Stralman isn't a name you're entirely familiar with, it's quite alright. Even under the scrupulous media scope of New York, the former seventh round pick has long gone relatively unnoticed. Game by game, though, that's becoming a thing of the past. In his third season with the Rangers, Stralman has ...

How Tanner Pearson and Tyler Toffoli are dominating the Rangers best defensemen

2014 NHL Stanley Cup Final - Practice
The Los Angeles Kings two young forwards, Tanner Pearson and Tyler Toffoli, are dominating the Rangers' best defensive pairing. They should look to take advantage of that in Game 5. A lot of adjectives are used to describe the Los Angeles Kings' style of play. They are physical. They are tough. They are big. They play a "heavy" game. In the end, all of it pretty much means the same thing, and it conjures up images of a burly, rough and tumble team ...

Los Angeles Kings Victory Parade And Rally
The only thing missing from Henrik Lundqvist's resume is a Stanley Cup, and his first shot at it is going as poorly as it could possibly go. During his nine-year career Henrik Lundqvist has not only been the backbone of the New York Rangers organization, he has been one of the best goalies in the world. He has achieved almost everything a player can at the position at both the individual and team level. He's won a Vezina Trophy as the best g ...

The New York Rangers had not trailed for a single second of ice time during Game 1 or Game 2, yet the puck dropped for Game 3 with the Los Angeles Kings leading the Stanley Cup Final 2-0.
