The New York Rangers agreed Thursday to a new contract with defenseman Anton Stralman, the team announced. Several reports say it is a two-year deal worth $3.4 million.

The sides had an arbitration hearing scheduled for July 31.

Stralman, who was a restricted free agent, finished with two goals and 18 points in 53 regular-season games and added three goals and six points in 20 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

A seventh-round draft pick by the Toronto Maple Leafs in 2005, Stralman, who turns 26 on Aug. 1, has career totals of 13 goals and 92 points in 265 games with the Maple Leafs, Columbus Blue Jackets and Rangers.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
