New York Rangers General Manager Jeff Gorton announced this afternoon that the team has signed forward Filip Chytil to a three-year entry-level contract.

Chytil, 17, was selected 21st overall by the Rangers in this past NHL Entry Draft. In 38 games with PSG Zlin in the Czech Extraliga this past season, he scored four goals and four assists for eight points and was one of 21 players younger than 18 who played in the league during the 2016-17 season.

Chytil was the Rangers second selection in the first round after selecting Swedish forward Lias Andersson with the seventh overall selection they acquired from the Arizona Coyotes as part of the Derek Stepan and Antti Raanta trade. Andersson also signed his entry-level contract earlier this week.
