NYR announce three-year extension for Ryan Lindgren. AAV is $3M

This is right in line with expectations from last month, as the deal is comparable to the contract Erik Cernak has in Tampa Bay. The deal takes Lindgren to his age-26 season and one more RFA deal with the Rangers. At that point, the Rangers would probably need to fork up bigger money.
This contract extension is a fair deal for both the Rangers and Ryan Lindgren. Very little risk, and an overall good job.
