The New York Rangers have avoided arbitration with forward Mats Zuccarello, agreeing to a new contract Tuesday. TSN's Darren Dreger is reporting it is a one-year, $1.15 million deal.

Zuccarello, 25, returned to the Rangers late in the 2012-13 season after starting with Magnitogorsk Metallurg of the Kontinental Hockey League and had three goals and eight points in 15 regular-season games. He had a goal and seven assists in 12 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Zuccarello has 11 goals and 34 points in 67 games with the Rangers over parts of three seasons.

Quote of the Day

I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
