The Rangers New York Rangers and the agent for Nikolai Zherdev are in the preliminary stages of negotiations aimed at extending the talented 24-year-old winger’s contract and thus preventing him from reaching the Group II free-agent market, The Post has learned.
“This is where I want to be,” Zherdev told The Post yesterday. “I don’t want to play in Russia next year. I want to stay here and play in the NHL, in New York, with the Rangers.
“I’m very happy here. I like the team. I like the guys. I like living here. Everything is good.”
