The New York Rangers have agreed to a contract with Stu Bickel to re-sign the defenseman.
The hard-hitting Bickel had nine assists in 51 games as a rookie last season. He had no points in 18 playoff games with the Rangers.
He was an unrestricted free agent after his contract expired after this season. The Rangers acquired Bickel in a trade with Anaheim in November 2010.
The New York Rangers have added grit and experience to their lineup by reaching a deal with forward Arron Asham on the first day of NHL free agency.
A 13-season NHL veteran, Asham spent the past two years with Pittsburgh. He had five goals and 11 assists in 64 games last season. Overall, he has 92 goals and 206 points in 756 career games split between five teams.

The New York Rangers may have made three moves over the course of Sunday's opening of free agency in the NHL, but those three moves made them little progress in respect to what is needed by this club for the next season.

As the third day of free agency begins, it’s hard to see how the Rangers have improved so far this summer.
GM Glen Sather has watched many of his depth players depart via free agency and has spent only $3.5 million total on a fourth-liner and a seventh defenseman.
But it’s a long offseason.
Sather remains engaged in trade talks with Columbus regarding 28-year-old left wing Rick...
Another depth forward comes off the market as Konopka inks a two-year deal with the Minnesota Wild. I was hoping Glen Sather would be working the phones to bring him in. A tough guy who can play big time penalty killing minutes and the big thing from Konopka would be his face-off capability. He was such a [...]
It's not often that the National Hockey League's Free Agent Frenzy falls on a Sunday, but that's what general managers across the League will be working with when they hit the phones this afternoon. The day in which the frenzy falls on is not the only unique factor playing into July 1, 2012, but so is the circumstance in which the NHL finds itself in right now. With no...
