Rangers sign Stoll -- one year, $800,000
The New York Rangers have signed forward Jarret Stoll to a one-year deal worth a reported $800,000.
Stoll won two Stanley Cups during his time with the Kings, but has been in the news lately after being arrested in Las Vegas for drug possession in April. The 33-year-old eventually saw the charges reduced to a pair of misdemeanors, paving the way to this deal with the Rangers.
With the Kings, Stoll excelled at taking faceoffs and killing penalties. Though he doesn’t produce a ton of offense, for $800,000 -- assuming his off-ice issues are behind him -- he could be a nice pick-up for the Blueshirts.
Stoll’s last contract paid him just under $10 million over three years.
