NEW YORK -- The New York Rangers are bringing back forward Ryan Callahan, coming to terms with the restricted free agent on a multiyear deal.

The deal was announced Monday by the Rangers, who were scheduled to have an arbitration hearing with Callahan on July 23.

The 24-year-old right winger set career highs with 22 goals, 40 points and 81 games played last season.

Callahan ranked second on the team with a career-high 237 shots, first with a plus-seven rating and fourth in goals. He was tops on the Rangers and fourth in the NHL with 256 hits.

He reached the 20-goal mark for the first time in his three seasons, and tied for the team lead with two goals in New York's first-round playoff loss to Washington. In 147 NHL regular-season games, Callahan has 34 goals and 25 assists.

The Rochester, N.Y., native was one of 34 players invited to next month's U.S. Olympic hockey orientation camp.

The Rangers also announced Monday that they agreed to terms with 23-year-old goalie Chad Johnson, acquired from Pittsburgh at last month's NHL draft.
