The New York Rangers have agreed to terms with restricted free agent forward Oscar Lindberg, the club announced today.

From the release:

Lindberg, 23, skated in 75 games with the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League (AHL) this past season, registering 28 goals and 28 assists for 56 points, along with a plus-seven rating and 68 penalty minutes. He established AHL career-highs in goals, assists, points, power play goals (10), plus/minus rating, and shots on goal (214), and tied AHL career-highs in games played and game-winning goals (six).

The next year should be a big one for Lindberg. After two full seasons in the AHL, he’ll be aiming to make the jump.

Lindberg played one game for the Rangers last season, skating just 8:18 against the Flames on Feb. 24 at MSG.

UPDATE: Per the New York Post, Lindberg’s deal is for two years at $650,000, $1.3M total.
