The New York Rangers signed free-agent center Vincent Trocheck to a seven-year contract, the team announced Wednesday. The deal is worth $5.625 million per season, reports The Athletic’s Arthur Staple.

Trocheck heads to Broadway after spending the past two-plus seasons with the Carolina Hurricanes, where he put up 96 points in 135 games.

The Rangers were known to be in the market for a No. 2 center this summer as its expected Ryan Strome – whose held the role the past few seasons – will test free agency. New York, fresh off a surprise trip to the Eastern Conference Final this spring, has approximately $4.5 million to continue adding to its roster after the Trocheck signing, according to Cap Friendly.

Trocheck adds some scoring depth and playmaking to the Rangers’ top six behind top pivot Mika Zibanejad.

The 29-year-old started his career with the Florida Panthers, where he spent seven seasons. Trocheck’s notched 378 points in 555 career games since being drafted in the third round in 2011.
