Eminger agrees to terms

September, 10, 2012
The Rangers have agreed to terms with 28-year-old blue-liner Steve Eminger, the team announced in a press release Monday. The one-year deal is worth $750,000, a source told ESPNNewYork.com.

Eminger has been a solid depth defenseman for the Blueshirts for the past two seasons, although his 2011-12 campaign was shortened by injury.

The former first-round pick (12th overall, 2002) had two goals and three assists and an even plus/minus rating in 42 regular-season games for the Rangers this past season. He also appeared in four playoff contests.

Eminger's signing comes one day after head coach John Tortorella painted a grim picture of the health of young defenseman Michael Sauer, who has not played since suffering a concussion December 5.
