New York Rangers have signed Barclay Goodrow to a 6 year deal

The Rangers acquired Barclay Goodrow for a 7th round pick from the Lightning they began contract negotiations. It’s very possible they hammered out the majority of the deal prior to the NHL Roster Freeze kicking in. That’s also probably why they left him unprotected knowing he was unlikely to change his mind and sign with Seattle.

Today, the Rangers should announce they have come to terms with Barclay Goodrow on a deal worth $21.6 million. The contract is expected to be 6 years at $3.6 million AAV.

“He’s a guy that we targeted and obviously went out and made a deal with Tampa early to get a jump on it,” Drury said via NHL.com. “I think he’s pretty versatile. I could see him do all different things for Gerard (Gallant), whether that’s more time in the middle, whether it’s face-offs in the d-zone. But we think he’s got a pretty complete game. He’s going be able to help a lot of different areas.”

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?
