Rangers re-sign Boyle to three-year pact
The New York Rangers and Brian Boyle avoided arbitration by coming to terms on a three-year contract Thursday, according to the Bergen Record.
The New York Rangers and Brian Boyle avoided arbitration by coming to terms on a three-year contract Friday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but the Bergen Record is reporting the deal is worth a total of $5.1 million, with a $1.7 million cap hit each season. Boyle earned $525,000 last year.

Boyle, 26, is coming off a breakout season with the Rangers, where he established new career-highs in goals (21) assists (14) and games played (82). It was Boyle's second season with New York after playing parts of two seasons with the Los Angeles Kings.

The 6-foot-7, 244-pound center had 218 shots last season after posting just 73 in 72 games in 2009-10.

The Rangers have two remaining restricted free agents -- forwards Ryan Callahan and Brandon Dubinsky.
Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
