Hoping to bolster their offense, the New York Rangers signed free-agent left wing Alexander Frolov on Tuesday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, although Newsday is reporting it's a one-year contract for $3 million.

Frolov, 28, had 19 goals and 32 assists in 81 games for the Los Angeles Kings last season. The Moscow native has surpassed the 20-goal plateau in five of his seven NHL seasons, all with Los Angeles. In 536 games, Frolov has 168 goals and 213 assists, along with 210 penalty minutes.

He was selected by the Kings in the first round (No. 20) of the 2000 Entry Draft.

"Alex is a highly skilled player who we feel will play a key role in improving our offense and play in all situations," Rangers General Manager Glen Sather said. "He is a strong competitor and has the ability to play either wing position."

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
