The New York Rangers have agreed to terms with restricted free agent forward Carl Hagelin on a two-year contract.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun, the deal is worth $2.25 million a season.

The 24-year-old has played the first two seasons of his NHL career with the Rangers, recording 24 goals and 38 assists in 112 games. He has added three goals and six assists in 29 postseason contests.

Hagelin becomes the second notable RFA the Rangers have reached a deal with this week. The team locked up defenseman Ryan McDonagh with a reported six- year, $28.2 million contract on Monday.

Hagelin, selected by New York Rangers in the sixth round of the 2007 NHL Draft, was eligible for file for salary arbitration on Wednesday.
