Breaking News: Rangers Sign Center Jason Arnott To One-Year Deal
Darren Dreger of TSN is reporting that the Rangers have signed Center Jason Arnott to a one-year deal worth between $1.6-1.7 million. Dreger says the contract is being finalized and Arnott is "en route" to New York right now.
Arnott, 38, skated in 72 games with the St. Louis Blues last year and recorded 17 goals and 17 assists for 34 points.
This news comes on the heels of this morning's news that Chris Kreider is battling bone spurs in his ankle and will not dress tonight against the Maple Leafs. The Rangers called up newly-acquired RW Ben Ferriero earlier today, who will take Kreider's place in the lineup for tonight's game.
More to come later, when I assume more news will come once John Tortorella meets with the media.
