New York Rangers President and General Manager Chris Drury announced today that the team has agreed to terms with restricted free agent defenseman Libor Hajek on a one-year contract.

Hajek, 23, skated in 44 games with the Rangers this past season, registering two goals and two assists for four points, along with a plus-two rating and 10 penalty minutes. The 6-2, 203-pounder has skated in 77 career NHL games over parts of three seasons (2018-19 - 2020-21), all with the Rangers, registering three goals and seven assists for 10 points, along with 28 penalty minutes. 

The Smrcek, Czech Republic native was acquired by the Rangers in a trade with Tampa Bay on February 26, 2018. Hajek was originally selected by the Lightning in the second round, 37th overall, of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.
