Dawes Remains a Blueshirt

The infamous NY Rangers GM, Glen Sather, announced today that the Rangers have agreed to terms with restricted free agent forward Nigel Dawes. Nigel skated in 61 games with the Rangers this past season, registering 14 goals and 15 assists for 29 points, along with 10 penalty minutes and a plus-11 rating. He led the club in plus/minus rating (plus-11), ranked second in shootout game-deciding goals (two) and tied for third in game-winning goals (four). His four game-winning goals also tied for second in the NHL among all rookie skaters.

Dawes had a productive rookie season with the Rangers, having scored 14 goals playing limited ice time. Dawes should net in at least 20 next season playing regularly with Drury or Dubinsky or whichever center's line he ends up playing on. Dawes signed an alleged one year deal worth somewhere in the $600,000 range.

I will follow up later with more info on the Dawes deal and what is going on with Freddie Sjostrom, who is in the midst of getting a two year deal to remain a Blueshirt.
