Igor Shesterkin signs 4-year deal with New York Rangers

Shesterkin’s contract is a four-year deal that is reportedly worth $22.6 million, which comes out to a salary cap number of $5.65 million per season.

It is not only a significant contract, it is the largest contract ever given to a goalie on their second contract. It is a clear sign that the Rangers not only know how good Shesterkin already is, but how much they believe in him to be their long-term answer in net.

Based on what we have seen from him already, they are right to believe in him that much.

In 47 career games over two seasons Shesterkin has a .922 save percentage with a 26-16-3 record. He is a significant part of the Rangers’ rebuild and one of their most important players. This contract will buy out the remaining two years of his restricted free agency and the first two years of his unrestricted free agent eligibility.

He finished fifth in the Calder Trophy voting this past season in the NHL’s Rookie Of The Year vote.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
