Rangers bring in Rupp with three-year deal
The New York Rangers, believed to be hot on the trail of prized free-agent Brad Richards, signed forward Michael Rupp to a three-year, $4.5 million contract Friday.

Rupp will help the Rangers fill out their bottom two lines. The 31-year-old spent the past two seasons with the Pittsburgh Penguins, posting 22 goals and 14 assists while missing just two games. As a rookie with the New Jersey Devils, Rupp scored the Stanley Cup-winning goal in Game 7 against the Anaheim Mighty Ducks.

In 497 games, Rupp has 49 goals, 40 assists and 656 penalty minutes.
Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
