Rangers sign Hellberg, re-sign Hrivik

The Rangers signed Magnus Hellberg today. Hellberg agreed to a two-year contract. Acquired from the Predators for a 2017 sixth round pick, the 24-year old Swede will compete for third goalie behind Henrik Lundqvist and new backup Antti Raanta. He’ll likely split time in Hartford with Mackenzie Skapski who is still recovering from hip surgery.

The club also agreed to a one-year deal with restricted free agent Marek Hrivik. The 23-year old has spent the past three seasons with Hartford after signing as a rookie free agent. In 72 games last season, he tallied 12 goals and 21 assists for a career best 33 points. Hrivik had a solid postseason adding three goals and six assists in the Wolf Pack’s run to the AHL Conference Finals.
