Chris Higgins Signed (Update: Other NHL Signings)July 6, 2009, by
Update 4:40pm: Terms of the Higgins deal are still undisclosed, but as for other news: Alex Kovalev signed a 2 year/$10 million deal with Ottawa, and Francois Beauchemin signed a 4 year/$14 million deal with Toronto.
If I had to guess on the Higgins deal, I would say 2 years/$8 million. Just a guess though.
Update 7:00pm: The Higgins deal is for 1 year, $2.25 million, according to ESPN (so take it with a grain of salt). Well below what I think most of us were anticipating for the rising young star. Another thumbs up for Sather. The one year deal gives the Rangers a lot of flexibility for the future. And his track record with mid-to-long-term deals has not been great. Kudos Slats, doing well so far this offseason
