Georgiev agrees to contract with Rangers


Alexandar Georgiev agreed to terms on a contract with the New York Rangers on Thursday. Terms were not disclosed.

The 24-year-old goalie, who was a restricted free agent, avoided a salary arbitration hearing scheduled for Oct. 31.

Georgiev was 17-14-2 with a 3.04 goals-against average, .910 save percentage and two shutouts in 34 games (32 starts) with the Rangers last season. He did not play in the best-of-5 Stanley Cup Qualifier series, which the Rangers lost to the Carolina Hurricanes in three games.

Signed by New York as an undrafted free agent July 17, 2017, Georgiev is 35-31-7 with a 3.00 GAA, .913 save percentage and four shutouts in 77 games (71 starts).

The Rangers have three other players with salary arbitration hearings scheduled: defenseman Tony DeAngelo (Oct. 20), and forwards Ryan Strome (Nov. 5) and Brendan Lemieux (Nov. 6).
