The New York Rangers announced Thursday that they have agreed to a deal to retain goaltender Alexandar Georgiev.

According to published reports, the agreement is for two years and worth $4.85 million.

The 24-year-old Georgiev was a restricted free agent.

Georgiev went 17-14-2 with a 3.04 goals-against average and .910 save percentage in 34 games last season.

Overall, he has played in 77 career games over three seasons (all with New York) and is 35-31-7 with a 3.00 GAA and .913 save percentage.

Igor Shesterkin, who will be entering his first full season, is expected to be the Rangers' No. 1 goaltender next season after the team bought out the contract of longtime stalwart Henrik Lundqvist.
