The New York Rangers agreed to terms with defenseman Tony DeAngelo on a new contract, the club announced Thursday.

It's a two-year pact carrying an average annual value of $4.8 million, reports TSN's Pierre LeBrun.

DeAngelo was a restricted free agent. He tied for third in goals among NHL blue-liners (15) and tied for fourth in points (53) at the position over 68 games in 2019-20.

The 24-year-old had a salary arbitration hearing scheduled for Oct. 20.

He spent the last three seasons with the Rangers after playing his rookie campaign with the Arizona Coyotes. New York acquired DeAngelo in a trade that sent Antti Raanta and Derek Stepan to the desert in June 2017.

DeAngelo was coming off a one-year, $925,000 deal he signed with the Rangers in September 2019.

New York also signed goaltender Alexandar Georgiev, a fellow RFA, earlier Thursday. The netminder's new contract is reportedly for two years at an AAV of $2,425,000.
