    Rangers Re-Sign F Mika Zibanejad to 5-Year/$26.75M Extension; $5.35M AAV

    The New York Rangers have officially re-signed forward Mika Zibanejad to a 5-Year/$26.75M extension worth $5.35M per season.

    @NYRangers: OFFICIAL: #NYR have agreed to terms with restricted free agent forward Mika Zibanejad on a five-year contract with an AAV of $5.35 million. pic.twitter.com/HAOSGT9ZUw

    Zibanejad had 37 points in 56 games for the Blueshirts this past season. Though his season was derailed by a broken fibula, he nevertheless managed to again improve his points per game (0.66), just as he's done in every season he's competed in the NHL. Best of all, at the age of 24, this deal should likely carry him through what stands to be his most productive years in the league. Barring unpredictable circumstances like injury or buyout, he should be eligible for Unrestricted Free Agency in the summer of 2022.

    I think that's a little high, but not enough to lose sleep over. I had him pegged at $5M x 5 years.

    Also, nice to see the Rangers break the story and have cap hit and term in the tweet.

    Hearing that trade talks with Leafs/Rangers picking up with Zib signed.

    No source. Take it with a massive grain of salt.

    Not thrilled about this situation but I'm also unsure about what choice we have. At least it's not 6?

    Seems about right for him.

    Looks to me like he met the Rangers at years (5) and they met him at AAV ($5.35).

    I just hope there is no NMC or NTC involved here.

    I'd be fine if it only applied to the first 2-3 years of the deal.

    5.35 doesn't seem so unreasonable to me, especially if he continues to improve. He's still very young. I think by year 3 of this contract it'll look like a bargain

    Not bad at all.
    Now please don't get injured and have an awesome offseason. Yes, making music is cool, but so is training. lol
    LGR!

    It's only slightly more than I had wanted, so not too bad. I'm hoping this looks like a steal in 2 or 3 years.

    Hmmm....thought anything over 5 was too high for him, but at 5 years.......ok. Personally, I haven't seen enough of him yet to make a good assessment (not that mine matters either way).

    Good enough. As others said if there no NTC, or NMC, it's even better.

    There's been no confirmation one way or another on what clauses, if any, the deal has. I'd imagine he was able to negotiate some level of trade protection given the team bought two years of UFA eligibilty from him, but we'll see.

    This is how I feel as well. I hope he can put up the numbers playing in the number 1 spot, but I still haven't made up my mind on him yet.

    Full No-Move Clause in the final three years. No Clauses for the first two.
