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 had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
