The New York Rangers have added a quality offensive defenseman to their roster, signing veteran Dan Boyle to a two-year deal, according to the New York Post.

The Post reported that the contract is worth a total of $9 million, a figure perhaps lower than Boyle's true value.

The 37-year-old spent the last six seasons with the San Jose Sharks, who decided to cut ties with him when they traded his negotiating rights to the New York Islanders in early June. Since Boyle didn't end up signing a deal with the Islanders, San Jose will receive a fifth-round pick to complete that trade instead of a fourth rounder.

Boyle had 12 goals and 36 total points for the Sharks last season and added four assists in the team's first-round playoff loss to the Los Angeles Kings. Over his 15-year career, Boyle has totaled 144 goals and 417 assists.

He joins a Rangers team that fell to the Kings in the Stanley Cup Finals in five games.
