Fedotenko signs with Rangers
Left wing Ruslan Fedotenko, who had been with the New York Rangers on a tryout contract, has signed with the team for the 2010-11 season. Terms of the deal were not released, but according to Newsday, it's a one-year, $1 million contract.

Fedotenko led the Rangers in preseason scoring with 7 points in five games. He also had a plus-5 rating.

Fedotenko is coming off the worst season of his NHL career in 2009-10, when he had just 11 goals, 30 points and a minus-17 rating in 80 games with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

In nine NHL seasons, Fedotenko has 150 goals and 308 points in 677 games with the Flyers, Lightning, Islanders and Penguins. He's a two-time Stanley Cup champion, having won in 2004 with the Lightning and 2009 with the Penguins. He had 12 goals in 22 playoff games for Tampa Bay, including both goals in the 2-1 win against the Calgary Flames in Game 7 of the Cup Final.

Quote of the Day

Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
