Rangers, C Zibanejad avoid arbitration with five-year deal

(TSX / STATS) -- The New York Rangers signed center Mika Zibanejad to a five-year, $26.75 million contract, the team announced on Tuesday.

An arbitration hearing, which was scheduled for Tuesday, was avoided.

The deal has an annual cap hit of $5.35 million, and that makes the 24-year-old Zibanejad the team's second-highest paid forward, behind only Rick Nash.
