Greg CaggianoSenior Writer IJuly 16, 2008

Today, the New York Rangers' President and General Manager Glen Sather announced that the club has reached a contractual agreement with left winger Nigel Dawes.

The young winger from Manitoba had been holding out, along with team mate Fred Sjostrom, before reaching a deal with the Rangers today.

No other details have been released but it is believed to be a one year deal worth around a million dollars.

Dawes has played a total of 65 NHL games while registering 15 goals and 15 assists for 30 points. He will be a very important part of the team's success next season as he is one of the few wingers that can actually keep up with speedy center Scott Gomez.
