Ryan Spooner and New York Rangers agree to two-year contract
The sides avoided an arbitration hearing, with Spooner becoming the last of the Rangers' restricted free agents to settle with the club.
Multiple media outlets pegged the deal's value at an average of $4 million per year. Last season, he made $2,825,000.
Spooner, 26, was acquired by New York at last season's trade deadline in a deal that moved winger Rick Nash to the Boston Bruins. In a total of 59 games for the two teams, Spooner amassed 13 goals, 28 assists and a plus-6 rating.
Spooner broke into the NHL with the Bruins by playing four games in 2012-13. In six NHL seasons, he has 45 goals and 113 assists in 273 games.
