The New York Rangers have signed forward Barclay Goodrow to a six-year contract ahead of the winger reaching unrestricted free agency.

Goodrow was acquired from the Tampa Bay Lightning for a 2022 seventh-round pick over the weekend.

The 28-year-old played 55 games with the Tampa Bay Lightning this season, scoring five goals to go along with 14 assists. He added two goals and four assists in 18 playoff games.

Goodrow is coming off a two-year, $1.85 million contract he signed with the San Jose Sharks in 2018. He was acquired by the Lightning via trade during the 2020 season in exchange for a first-round pick and prospect Anthony Greco.

In 331 career games, Goodrow has 32 goals and 61 assists. He also has five goals and nine assists in 65 career playoff games.

I am seeing from Capfriendly that the AAV and cap hit is just 3.6M over those six years.
That's actually not bad.

I was expecting the Rangers to get crazy or Barclay to go nutso and demand something like 5M....but to keep a still-in-his-prime, tough blue collar player like Goodrow under 4M and closer to 3.5, that is pretty good!

Goodrow gets his nice pay raise (from the 925K he was making with the Bolts), and the Rangers get a guy that can help anchor their bottom six and help stabilize that young core they have there.

Good luck in New York, Barclay (except when you play your old club of course... ;) ), and thank you for the two Stanley Cups!
