The New York Rangers agreed to terms with defenceman Steve Eminger on a new contract on Monday.
Eminger appeared in 65 games with the Rangers last season, registering two goals and four assists, along with 22 penalty minutes. The 27-year-old ranked third on the team with 101 blocked shots.
Eminger has skated in 411 career games with the Rangers, Anaheim Ducks, Florida Panthers, Tampa Bay Lightning, Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals, registering 17 goals and 74 assists for 91 points, along with 323 penalty minutes.
The Woodbridge, Ontario native was acquired by the Rangers from the Ducks in exchange for forwards Aaron Voros and Ryan Hillier last summer. He was originally selected as Washington's first round choice, 12th overall, in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.
