NEW YORK, N.Y. - The Rangers reached agreements on deals with restricted free agent forward Carl Hagelin and newly acquired defenceman Justin Falk.

Hagelin agreed to a two-year, $4.5 contract. He will earn $2.1 million next season and $2.4 million in 2014-15. He carries a salary-cap hit of $2.25 million.

The 24-year-old Falk, acquired by the Rangers from Minnesota on June 30, will earn $975,000 on his one-year contract.

Hagelin, who is also 24, had 10 goals, 14 assists and a plus-10 rating in playing in all 48 games last season. He ranked sixth on the team in points and goals and third in shots. New York went 14-2-1 when he had a point.

Falk had three assists and 40 penalty minutes in 36 games with Minnesota last season.

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.
