Sept. 26 (Bloomberg) -- The New York Rangers re-signed free-agent forward Derek Stepan, their leading scorer last season.

Financial terms weren’t disclosed in a statement from the National Hockey League team. The package is worth $6.15 million over two years, ESPN reported, citing people it didn’t identify.

Stepan, a 23-year-old center, had 18 goals and 26 assists for 44 points, along with 12 penalty minutes, in 48 games last season. He also led the team and tied for second in the NHL with six game-winning goals.

Rick Nash led the Rangers in goals scored with 21.

The Rangers begin the season on Oct. 3 in Phoenix, the opener of a nine-game road trip.
