NEW YORK (AP) -The New York Rangers agreed to terms with restricted free agent forward Dan Fritsche on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old Fritsche had 10 goals and 12 assists in 69 games with the Columbus Blue Jackets last season.

The 6-foot-1, 206-pounder had 29 goals and 34 assists in 206 career games with Columbus.

The Parma, Ohio, native was originally Columbus' second-round choice, 46th overall, in the 2003 draft.

He was acquired with Nikolai Zherdev from Columbus in exchange for Fedor Tyutin and Christian Backman on July 2.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
