This just in, according to NHL contract resource CapFriendly, the New York Rangers have re-signed goaltender Alexandar Georgiev to a two year contract worth $2.425 million per season.
Check it out:
The 24 year old netminder from Ruse, Bulgaria established himself as a full-time NHLer with the Rangers last season. He suited up in 34 games and put up a 3.10 goals against average and .910 save percentage. With long-time Rangers netminder Henrik Lundqvist now a member of the Washington Capitals after a contract buy out, the crease now belongs Georgiev and Igor Shesterkin in the Big Apple.
Shesterkin, of course, is the 24 year old rookie who absolutely scintillated Rangers fans with his brief 12 game showing to close out the 2019-20 season. Between Shesterkin and Georgiev there's reason to believe that the Rangers will have some stability in goal for at least the next two seasons. Talk about an embarrassment of riches! The Rangers somehow find a way to seamless go from one legend in Mike Richter to Henrik Lundqvist and now seem poised to have Shesterkin take over for Lundqvist. Incredible.
