The Ranges announced Monday that they have agreed to terms on a new deal for the 27-year-old defenseman. Eminger skated in 65 games with New York last season, tallying 2 goals and 4 assists. He also had 22 penalty minutes and ranked third on the club with 101 blocked shots.
The Woodbridge, Ont. native was acquired by the Rangers from the Ducks in exchange for forwards Aaron Voros and Ryan Hillier on July 9, 2010. He was originally selected as Washington's first-round choice (No. 12) at the 2002 Entry Draft.
Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
