Chris Kreider feels like he got away from the style he wants to play with last season.

"It's what I should've been doing last year and it's what I will be doing this year -- big, strong, fast, mean, imposing, getting to the net and playing a power forward game ... north-south," Kreider said. He admitted that his cold start got to him and he is anxious to come out strong in 2016-17. Kreider got a lift during the off-season with a four-year, $18.5 million deal, which has given him some additional confidence.

Sergey Zborovskiy has inked a three-year, entry-level deal with the New York Rangers.

The 19-year-old defenseman played in his second season with the WHL's Regina Pats in 2015-16 and he recorded 25 points in 64 contests. He was a third-round choice by the Rangers in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.

Kevin Hayes' new two-year contract is reportedly worth $5.2 million.

Hayes completed his sophomore campaign with the Rangers, scoring 14 goals and 36 points in 79 games. This agreement prevented the two sides from going through an arbitration hearing, which had been scheduled for July 27. It seems like a fair bridge deal for both sides, buying them time to see what type of player Hayes develops into.

Kevin Hayes has agreed to terms with the New York Rangers.

The details of Hayes' new contract aren't known yet, but this makes his arbitration hearing scheduled for July 27 moot. He had 14 goals and 36 points in 79 contests in 2015-16.

Chris Kreider has inked a four-year, $18.5 million contract with the New York Rangers.

Kreider was scheduled to have an arbitration hearing today, but this agreement made that moot. He'll come with a $4.625 million annual cap hit, which is very close to the $4.75 million he was requesting, but while the Rangers conceded ground in terms of average annual salary, Kreider provided them with a longer term. This could end up working out very well for the Rangers if Kreider demonstrates that at the age of 25 he hasn't yet reached his peak. He had 21 goals and 43 points in 79 contests last season after recording 46 points in 2014-15.

Although the Calgary Flames declined to provide Josh Jooris with a qualifying offer, he's leaving with positive feelings about the franchise.

"I definitely built amazing relationships in Calgary with the guys and within the organization," he said. "I was thankful for the opportunity they gave me and I learned a lot as a player. I was able to get my foot in the door and they granted me that opportunity. That was amazing. The two years I spent in Calgary were an unbelievable part of my career and part of my life." Although the Flames allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent by avoiding a qualifying offer, they still had some interest in re-signing him. However, the Flames needed to focus on other matters first and while Jooris waited to hear something more from them, he got an offer from the Rangers, which he agreed to. He'll spend the 2016-17 campaign on a one-year, two-way deal that will pay him $600,000 in the NHL or $350,000 in the minors with a guaranteed minimum total salary of $400,000.

Chris Kreider has requested a salary of $4.75 million for the 2016-17 campaign.

The New York Rangers have countered with an offer of $3.2 million. Those figures are being provided ahead of Friday's scheduled arbitration hearing. If the two sides can find a middle ground prior to the hearing then it will be made moot.

The New York Rangers believe Mika Zibanejad still has untapped upside.

The Rangers acquired Zibanejad and a 2018 second rounder from Ottawa in exchange for Derick Brassard and a 2018 seventh-round selection. "We feel we’re getting a player who’s just scratching the surface and who has a lot of upside," Rangers GM Jeff Gorton said. "He kills penalties, he’s [good] on draws. And he can play against the better, bigger centers around the league. At the end of the day, we felt this makes us a better team." Zibanejad had 21 goals and 51 points in 81 contests last season. He's 23 years old and he only celebrated that birthday in April, so it's not unreasonable to believe he can grow further. Even if he doesn't end up having a better 2016-17 campaign than Brassard, the Rangers got the better long-term option out of this exchange.

The New York Rangers have acquired Mika Zibanejad and a 2018 second round pick from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for Derick Brassard and a 2018 seventh round selection.

Brassard outperformed Zibanejad offensively in 2015-16 by a modest amount (58 points to 51), but Zibanejad is roughly five-and-a-half years younger. In other words, the Rangers are potentially downgrading in the short-term, but in such a way that might help them for years to come. The other downside for New York is that its losing a bit of cost certainty here. Brassard still has three seasons on his reasonable five-year, $25 million contract, but Zibanejad can become a restricted free agent next summer and will likely demand a raise over his current $2,625,000 annual cap hit.

Josh Jooris' recently inked contract with the New York Rangers in a one-year, two-way deal.

Jooris can earn $600,000 at the NHL level or $350,000 annually in the minors. Regardless of which combination of the NHL and AHL he plays in though, he's been guaranteed a total salary of at least $400,000. He had four goals and 13 points in 59 games with the Calgary Flames in 2015-16.

The New York Rangers have signed Robin Kovacs to an entry-level contract.

Kovacs had an assist in four games in Sweden's top league last season. He also had 21 goals and 34 points in 44 contests while playing in the second tier league, HockeyAllsvenskan. He was taken with the 62nd overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
Jul 17 - 3:55 PM

Tommy Hughes has agreed to terms with the New York Rangers.

Hughes had nine points and 48 penalty minutes in 59 AHL contests in 2015-16. The 24-year-old hasn't made his NHL debut.
