The Rangers agreed to terms with forward Phillip DiGiuseppe, a restricted free agent, the team announced on Tuesday.

According to CapFriendly, the deal is for one year and $700,000 at the NHL level, with a minor-league salary of $250,000.

DiGiuseppe, 27, signed with the Rangers as a free agent last year, and started the 2019-20 season with AHL Hartford, where he played 43 games (14 goals, 12 assists). He was called up to the Rangers in February and played 20 games, scoring one goal and three assists playing mostly as a third-line left wing.

DiGiuseppe was one of the Rangers’ five restricted free agents with arbitration rights, and the only one not to file for arbitration. The others are goaltender Alexandar Georgiev, defenseman Tony DeAngelo and forwards Ryan Strome and Brendan Lemieux.
