NY, NY, United States (NewsBahn) - Jimmy Vesey became an unrestricted free agent and agree to terms with the New York Rangers over the weekend.

The Harvard star inked a two-year entry-level contract with a base salary of $925,000 with a possible maximum of $2.85 million in bonuses.

He could have signed with the Preds or Sabres , but instead opted to join a mostly-veteran Rangers squad.

"It's pretty well-documented that a real good player on an entry-level contract, every team needs those guys," Rangers general manager Jeff Gorton said. "That's going to help you in a salary-cap world. Obviously, that's a part of it. But at the end of the day, he's a really good player that becomes a free agent. Every team's going to want to try to go for something like that."

Star-studded fans like Susan Sarandon tweeted congratulations.

"It definitely took on a life of its own so to speak, and I'm not sure that me or anyone else expected that, but that's not something that I signed up for," Vesey said. "If you talk to anyone that knows me, I'm a quiet kid. I really had no intentions of it being such a media craze. It was pretty hectic at times, so I'm just glad that the process is over now."
