The New York Rangers have signed right wing Mats Zuccarello to a four-year, $18 million extension.
The extension is for four years and worth $18 million, according to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News. It includes a full no-trade clause in the first year only, according to Leonard.
Zuccarello is in his fifth NHL season, all of which have been with the Rangers. The winger has 12 goals and 23 assists in 59 games this season, to go along with a plus-13 mark.
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.
The Rangers (38-17-6) are currently in second in the Metropolitan Division and host the Nashville Predators on Monday.
