NEW YORK (AP) -Longtime Vancouver Canucks captain Markus Naslund agreed to terms Thursday with the New York Rangers on a two-year deal.
Naslund, who scored 25 goals and added 30 assists last season, leaves Vancouver after 12 seasons - including eight as captain.
The winger, who will turn 35 later this month, reached a deal with the Rangers on the same day the team agreed to terms with former Buffalo Sabres defenseman Dmitri Kalinin. Earlier this week, New York dipped into the free-agency pool by signing defenseman Wade Redden and forwards Patrick Rissmiller and Aaron Voros.
The signing of Naslund likely ends the Rangers career of captain Jaromir Jagr, who is still mulling his future as an unrestricted free agent.
``It's unfortunate that sometimes things like this come to an end,'' Rangers general manager Glen Sather said.
