The New York Rangers and forward Chis Kreider have come to terms on a seven-year contract extension, team president John Davidson told reporters Monday.
The deal carries roughly an average annual value of $6.5 million.
“There was lots of dialogue. This has gone on for a few days,” Davidson said. “Both sides are very happy with the deal we were able to put together.”
Kreider, 28, has 45 points in 60 games this season.
The six-foot-three, 217-pound power forward has 316 points across 520 NHL games, all spent with the Rangers.
Prior to signing the extension, Kreider was rumoured to be among the top available talents at the NHL trade deadline.
