NEW YORK -- The New York Rangers avoided salary arbitration with Henrik Lundqvist by agreeing to terms on a one-year deal Wednesday with the Olympic gold-medal winning goalie.

Lundqvist, a restricted free agent scheduled for an arbitration hearing on July 24, will earn $4.25 million next season. He made $817,000 last season.

The two-time Vezina Trophy finalist will be in line for a long-term contract after next Jan. 1 that will impact the 2008-09 cap instead of this season.

If New York signs Lundqvist to another one-year deal in 2008, they run the risk of losing him to unrestricted free agency in the summer of 2009.

It was the second key re-signing by the Rangers in two days after Brendan Shanahan agreed to a one-year contract Tuesday to return to New York for a second season. That leaves forwards Sean Avery and Marcel Hossa, both slated for arbitration, as the Rangers' last remaining restricted free agents.

Hate it. Wish they would get it over already and sign him to a long term deal. I don't want to see him leaving under any circumstances once he can become an UFA.

I wouldn't worry. They'll lock him up to a long-term extention next January when it won't count against their cap for this season.
