The extension is for four years and worth $18 million, according to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily NewsIt includes a full no-trade clause in the first year only, according to Leonard.

Trade Deadline: How we got here, who went where

Last season, the 27-year-old had career highs of 19 goals and 40 assists, leading to the team re-signing him to a one-year, $3.5 million deal last July. The Norway native originally signed with New York as a free agent in 2010.

On Sunday, the Rangers acquired defenseman Keith Yandle in a four-player trade with the Arizona Coyotes.

The Rangers (38-17-6) are currently in second in the Metropolitan Division and host the Nashville Predators on Monday.
