Prucha re-signed.



NEW YORK -- Forward Petr Prucha agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the New York Rangers, with whom he has scored 52 goals in two seasons.


Prucha, a 24-year-old native of the Czech Republic, will earn $1.6 million each of the next two seasons. He became a restricted free agent after posting 22 goals and 18 assists for the Rangers in 79 games last season.


He is the first Rangers player to score 20 or more goals in each of his first two NHL seasons since Alexei Kovalev in the early 1990s.


Good, 1.6 million/year is a bargain for a guy who scores 26 goals (on average) per season. Not to mention is young & with no significant injury history... the only reason that I can think of not signing him long-term is that they need to be conservative for the next two seasons (after which the roster will be replenished with the kids from the farm).
