Report: Arnott agrees to one-year deal with Rangers
Jason Arnott has agreed to a one-year contract with the New York Rangers, TSN's Darren Dreger has reported.

Jason Arnott has agreed to a one-year contract with the New York Rangers, TSN's Darren Dreger has reported.

Arnott, 38, had 17 goals and 17 assists in 72 games for the St. Louis Blues last season.

"I have no comment on it," Rangers coach John Tortorella said. "Nothing's been done yet. We've had discussion on a number of different players."

Arnott would provide much-needed forward depth for the Rangers, who have used defenseman Stu Bickel as a fourth-line forward and recently acquired Benn Ferriero, who will make his Rangers debut Saturday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Arnott would bring a wealth of experience to the Rangers. In 1,244 career regular-season games, he has 417 goals and 938 points. In 122 Stanley Cup Playoff games, he has 32 goals and 73 points and won a Stanley Cup with the New Jersey Devils in 2000.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
