It’s happening. The biggest name in free agency, Kevin Shattenkirk, is a New York Ranger according to multiple reports:

The New Rochelle native officially agreed to a four-year deal worth $26.6M a few hours after the market for Unrestricted Free Agents opened at noon Eastern time, bringing to a close more than two years worth of speculation that the 28-year old wished to suit up for the Blueshirts.

Given the term and the average annual value, Shattenkirk no doubt left millions on the table to be a Ranger this season.

The contract details, including a yearly breakdown of salary is as follows:

While the No Movement Clause (NMC) and Modified No Trade Clause (NTC) aren’t ideal, they’re also something premium free agents don’t sign contracts without. Given the limited term that will carry Shattenkirk to his 32nd birthday, it shouldn’t be too big of a problem for the Rangers.
