The Rangers have agreed to terms with defenseman Ryan Lindgren on a three year entry level contract. Lindgren, one of the main pieces in the Rick Nash deal to Boston, is a solid skating and physical defenseman playing at Minnesota. The 6′, 200 lb defenseman is known more for his skating and defensive play than his offensive prowess. He has a line of 2-7-9 in 35 games so far in his sophomore season.
Lindgren also has a good head on his shoulders and has good instincts for the game. He isn’t as polished or NHL ready, so it’s feasible he could spend next year in the AHL getting acclimated to the pro game."Rangers agree to terms with Ryan Lindgren",
