Rangers News: Christensen Re-Signs for 2 years

Larry Brooks of the New York Post is reporting on Twitter that the New York Rangers have re-signed forward Erik Christensen for 2 years at $925,000 per year. This is surprising since Christensen originally turned down a 2-year offer for $750,000 per yesterday, so that means GM Glen Sather increased his offer to meet Christensen's asking price, but hey, Erik was very good with the Rangers last season and is well worth the extension.

Christensen, age 26, recorded eight goals and and 18 assists for a total of 26 points in 49 games played with New York in 2009-10. After being acquired via waivers, he quickly became a fit to play with star winger Marian Gaborik. The Edmonton native has quick hands, knows how to move the puck, and can finish when he has the opportunity. Christensen mentioned that last season was his last chance to prove he belonged in the National Hockey League; he did that and more during his time with the Rangers.
