The New York Rangers have re-signed defenseman Steve Eminger.

The New York Rangers announced on Monday afternoon that the club has come to terms on a new contract with unrestricted free agent defenseman Steve Eminger. The deal is reportedly worth $750,000, which means he took a pay cut from the one-year, $800,000 contract he signed with the Rangers last offseason.

The club originally acquired the 28-year-old, Ontario native in 2010 via trade with the Anaheim Ducks for forwards Aaron Voros and Ryan Hillier.

In 42 games with the Rangers last season, Eminger averaged just over 13 minutes of ice time per game while adding two goals and three assists for five points.

The 6'1", 202-pound blue liner has scored 19 goals and 77 assists for 96 points in 453 games. Originally selected with the No. 12 overall selection in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft by the Washington Capitals, Eminger has also spent time with the Philadelphia Flyers, Tampa Bay Lightning and Florida Panthers.
