Rangers Agree to Contract Terms With Free Agent Brad Richards

July 2 (Bloomberg) -- The New York Rangers agreed to contract terms with free-agent center Brad Richards, the 10th leading scorer in the National Hockey League last season and a former postseason most valuable player.

The Rangers didn’t disclose terms of the agreement in a statement. TSN network of Canada reported on its website that Richards agreed on a nine-year, $60 million pact.

The NHL’s free-agent signing period began yesterday.

Richards, 31, made $7.8 million with the Dallas Stars last season and led the team with 28 goals and 49 assists in 72 games. He’s recorded 220 goals and 496 assists in 772 career games with Dallas and the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Richards will be reunited with coach John Tortorella, who guided the center to a Stanley Cup title in 2004 with Tampa Bay. That year, Richards won the Conn Smythe trophy as the MVP of the playoffs after registering a postseason-best 26 points.
