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 mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
