Dan Fritsche, who was acquired from the Columbus Blue Jackets along with Nikolai Zherdev in a July 1 trade, has signed a deal with the New York Rangers.
The forward from Parma, Ohio avoided arbitration, which was the direction he was heading last week, by signing.
Terms of the deal have not been disclosed either to Yahoo or to Newsday, the two sources for this article.
It is believed to be a one-year deal worth about $857,000 for the season, but do not quote me on that.
More information coming when I have it...
