Rangers Re-Sign Defenseman Eminger

From NewYorkRangers.com:

New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has agreed to terms with defenseman Steve Eminger on a new contract.

Eminger, 28, skated in 42 games with the Rangers last season, registering two goals and three assists for five points, along with 28 penalty minutes. He tied his career-high for most assists in a game with two assists, including one on the power play and one while shorthanded, on December 10 at Buffalo.

He missed 32 games due to injury, including 20 games from December 20 to February 5 with a separated shoulder. Eminger also skated in four postseason contests, making his Rangers playoff debut on April 28 against Washington.

Defenseman Steve Eminger returns to the Rangers for a third season after seeing action in 42 games last year and more than 100 total games since joining the organization just over two years ago.

The 6-2, 203-pounder has recorded four goals and seven assists in 107 games with the Rangers over the last two seasons. He made his Rangers debut in the 2010-11 season opener on October 9 at Buffalo, and tallied his first point as a Blueshirt in the home opener that season on October 15 against Toronto.
