The New York Rangers and restricted free agent forward Brett Howden agreed to a one-year deal on Friday.

The team did not release financial details, but the New York Post reported it is worth $885,000.

Howden, 23, appeared in 42 games in 2020-21 and had seven points (one goal, six assists) and 11 penalty minutes. In 178 games with the Rangers (2018-21), he has posted 49 points (16 goals, 33 assists).
