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

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.

Quote of the Day

You could see out there that everybody was willing to compete, to sacrifice, even blocking shots to the end. Even in the third when we were up 5-0, guys were still working hard and blocking shots That's a nice feeling also for the future.
