Rangers agree to terms with Nicklas Jensen, Mat Bodie
NEW YORK (AP) The New York Rangers have agreed to terms with restricted free agents Nicklas Jensen and Mat Bodie.
Jensen was acquired by the Rangers from Vancouver along with a sixth-round pick in the 2017 draft for Emerson Etem last season. He was a first-round pick by the Canucks, No. 29 overall, in the 2011 draft.
The 23-year-old Jensen skated in 68 games in the American Hockey League with the Utica Comets and Hartford Wolf Pack this past season, getting 19 goals and 18 assists.
He has skated in 24 NHL games over parts of three seasons, all with Vancouver, getting three goals and three assists.
The 26-year-old Bodie skated in 76 games with the Wolf Pack this past season, getting seven goals and 29 assists.
Bodie was one of two players - and the only defenseman - who skated in every game with the Wolf Pack in 2015-16.
He was signed by the Rangers as an undrafted free agent on April 15, 2014.
