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.

2014 NHL Stanley Cup Final - Media Day
Ryan McDonagh came within an inch of winning Game 5. About midway through the first overtime period of Game 5, the New York Rangers thought they had won the game. When Ryan McDonagh's slap shot rang off the post he raised his hands in celebration, certain he had just brought his team within one win of tying the Stanley Cup Final. But the referees didn't signal a goal, and play continued. The next few minutes were harrowing, as the play couldn't be revi ...

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 t ...

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 ...

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 ...

2014 NHL Stanley Cup Final - Practice
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.
