by Jesse Connolly/Web Editor
On Thursday, the Rangers and restricted free agent Anton Stralman agreed to a new deal. The contract is reportedly for two years and worth a total of $3.4 million.
The 2011-12 season was Stralman’s first on Broadway. He appeared in 53 games for the Blueshirts, scoring two goals and adding 16 assists to go along with a plus-9 rating. In 20 postseason contests, he had three goals and three assists.
Stralman, who will turn 26 on Aug. 1, was drafted 216th overall by the Maple Leafs back in 2005. The Swedish blueliner has 13-79-92 totals in 265 career NHL games for the Leafs, Blue Jackets and Rangers.
In reaching a deal, the two sides will avoid an arbitration hearing that was set for July 31.
