The New York Rangers Thursday agreed to terms with free-agent left wing Brent Fedyk, who did not play in the NHL last season. Terms were not disclosed.
The 31-year-old Fedyk spent the entire 1997-98 campaign in the IHL, totaling 39 goals and 36 assists in 66 combined games with the Detroit Vipers
A former linemate of All-Stars Eric Lindros and Mark Recchi in Philadelphia, Fedyk has 93 goals and 106 assists in 403 career NHL games with the Detroit Red Wings, Flyers and Stars. He was the eighth-overall pick by Detroit in the 1985 draft.
Fedyk becomes the fifth role player to sign with the Rangers in the off-season, joining veteran right wing John MacLean, centers Scott Fraser and Derek Armstrong and defenseman Peter Popovich.
