New York, NY, United States (4E Sports) - The New York Rangers and center Derek Stepan have agreed to terms on a six-year deal reportedly worth $39 million, with an average annual value of $6.5 million.
The deal came on the day the Rangers and Stepan were scheduled for an arbitration hearing.
"It's a great feeling," Stepan said. "I can't be more excited to be a part of a team that I absolutely love. I love the city of New York, I'm grateful for the fans, grateful for the management there. Me and my wife are extremely happy to be there for the next six years."
The 25-year-old Stepan had 16 goals, 55 points, 22 penalty minutes and was plus-26 in 68 regular-season games for the Rangers last season. He had five goals, 12 points, 10 penalty minutes and a minus-1 rating in 19 Stanley Cup Playoff games.
Stepan scored the winning goal in overtime of Game 7 against the Washington Capitals, but did not have a point in the last four games of the Eastern Conference Final, which the Rangers lost to the Tampa Bay Lightning in seven games.
In five NHL seasons, all with the Rangers, Stepan has 89 goals, 252 points and is plus-85. He has 15 goals, 41 points and is minus-5 in 80 playoff games.
