New York Rangers Sign Tony DeAngelo to Two-Year Extension

The New York Rangers have signed offensive defenseman Tony DeAngelo to a two-year deal with an average annual value of $4.8 million. Prior to the two sides hammering this deal out, DeAngelo was a pending restricted free agent with arbitration rights.

DeAngelo, who turns 25 in October, is coming off of a career year in 2019-20. He scored 15 goals and picked up 38 assists in 68 games. Among d-men, only John Carlson (75), Roman Josi (65), and Victor Hedman (55) had more points than DeAngelo this year. The right-handed blueliner earned 19 of his 53 points on the man advantage and scored three game-winning goals.

The notable part of his deal, of which he will still be an RFA upon completion, is that he will have a higher qualifying offer in the final year which could result in him signing a one-year deal that takes him to unrestricted free agency.

The Rangers seem to be taking care of business with their RFAs, as earlier today they also re-signed Alexandar Georgiev.

Now the Rangers have Ryan Strome and Brendan Lemieux left as their RFAS. Strome is scheduled for arbitration on November 5, and Lemieux is scheduled for November 6.
