New York Rangers agree to terms with Russian forward Ruslan Fedotenko

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Free-agent forward Ruslan Fedotenko agreed to a one-year, US$1-million contract with the New York Rangers on Monday.

The 31-year-old left winger had one goal and six assists in five games with New York during the preseason, topping his new club in points.

Fedotenko has won Stanley Cup titles with Tampa Bay, under current Rangers coach John Tortorella, and Pittsburgh. He will be looking to impart that winning experience onto the Rangers, who missed the playoffs last season and have reached the second round only twice in five years.

Fedotenko played in Pittsburgh last season, his ninth in the NHL. He had 11 goals and 30 points in 80 games. He also has been with Philadelphia and the New York Islanders.
