Rangers News: Prospal Re-Signs with New York

In what is probably the last signing of the day for the New York Rangers, forward Vinny Prospal has received a contract extension for one year worth $1 million, but the veteran will earn $1.1 million in achievable bonuses as well. Prospal, age 35, finished second in scoring behind Marian Gaborik on the Blueshirts last season with 20 goals and 38 assists for a total of 58 points in 75 games played. The re-signing of Vinny was a move I felt the Rangers would be very wise to make.

Prospal was one of the very few players who clicked with Marian Gaborik and he did so while playing on both the wing and at center. That most likely was a key factor in the decision by Ranger brass to re-up the Czech Republic native. The only thing you have to worry about is injuries since he did have knee surgery last winter. It did not seem to affect him for the remainder of the season, though.
