Per Andrew Gross, the Rangers have re-signed RFA center Brian Boyle to a three year contract. Boyle was set to be a UFA in a year, so the Rangers bought out two UFA years. I’d expect his contract to be in the $1.5-$1.75 million per year range, but it could be slightly higher, considering the length. This is great news for the Rangers, who just have two RFAs left to sign. Of course, those two RFAs are the most important RFAs to sign.
Contract details have not been disclosed yet. We will update as soon as they are made available.
Update: Larry Brooks is reporting that Boyle’s contract is three years at $1.7 million per season, right in line with that I said above. It’s a little off from my original prediction ($1.5 million), but buying out UFA years adds more dollars to the contract. All in all, it’s a solid deal for both Boyle and the Rangers.
