Rangers agree to terms with free-agent centre Nick Tarnasky

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The New York Rangers agreed to terms with free-agent forward Nick Tarnasky.

The 29-year-old centre had 13 goals, nine assists and 144 penalty minutes in a career-high 76 games last season for Montreal's Hamilton affiliate in the American Hockey League.

The deal with the Rangers was announced Thursday.

Tarnasky also led Hamilton in penalty minutes and tied for fifth on the team in goals and power-play tallies (four).

In 245 career NHL games during five seasons with Tampa Bay, Nashville, and Florida, Tarnasky has 13 goals, 17 assists and 297 penalty minutes. His last NHL appearance was with Florida during the 2009-10 season.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
