The Rangers have tied up a loose end, re-signing Boo Nieves to a one-year, $700k deal. This keeps Nieves away from UFA status, and is a very cheap cost for their 4C, so this is a good deal for the team. For Nieves, he’s earned his role as the 4C after a few years of uncertainty.
The Rangers’ 2nd rounder in the 2012 draft, Nieves has a line of 4-13-17 in 58 total NHL games. This year, he’s put up 3-5-8 in 29 games.
