Goalie Ondrej Pavelec agreed to terms on a contract with the New York Rangers on Saturday. 

Length and salary were not released, but TSN reported the contract is for one year and $1.3 million.

Tweet from @TSNBobMcKenzie: Pavelec's terms with NYR: 1 x $1.3M.

Pavelec replaces Antti Raanta, who with center Derek Stepan was traded to the Arizona Coyotes on June 23 after backing up Henrik Lundqvist for two seasons in New York.

Pavelec, 29, was 4-4-0 with a 3.55 goals-against average and .888 save percentage in eight games last season after he was recalled from Manitoba of the American Hockey League on Jan. 17. He's 152-158-47 with a 2.87 GAA and .907 save percentage in 379 NHL games, all with the Jets/Atlanta Thrashers franchise.
