Center Brian Boyle, the restricted free agent center whose arbitration hearing was scheduled for July 25, has agreed to a three-year, $5.1 million contract, his agent confirmed to Newsday.
The 6-7 Boyle, 26, had a breakout season last year with 21 goals and 14 assists and played in all 82 games. He had a cap hit of $525,000 last year. His cap hit is now $1.7 million.
Two other Rangers RFAs ---Brandon Dubinsky and Ryan Callahan---are scheduled for arbitration hearings, but talks are continuing. RFAs Artem Anisimov and Michael Sauer signed two-year deals earlier this month.
