The New York Rangers locked up a key piece of their future on Wednesday, agreeing to terms on a four-year contract extension with forward Filip Chytil through the 2026-27 season.
The deal is worth a shade under $4.4 million per season, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.
Chytil has recorded a career-high in goals (22), assists (20) and points (42) this season while appearing in 66 games. The 23-year-old is the seventh Rangers player in the past 20 years to record a 20-goal season at age 23 or younger, per the team.
More to come.
