NEW YORK -- The Rangers and veteran forward Lee Stempniak have agreed to terms on a one-year contract.

The deal with the 31-year-old Stempniak was announced Saturday. A source told ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun that it is worth $900,000. 

In 73 regular-season games last season between Calgary and Pittsburgh, Stempniak had 12 goals and 22 assists. During the playoffs with Pittsburgh, Stempniak had two goals and three points in 13 games.

In 637 career NHL games with St. Louis, Toronto, Phoenix, Calgary, and Pittsburgh, Stempniak has 150 goals and 191 assists. He has scored at least 14 goals in six of his nine seasons and reached 40 points three times.

Stempniak will earn $900,000 next season. That gives the Rangers about $12 million in salary cap space to sign restricted free agent forwards Derick Brassard, Mats Zuccarello, and Chris Kreider, and defenseman John Moore.
