The New York Rangers have secured forward Filip Chytil through the 2026-27 season by agreeing to a four-year, $17.75 million contact extension on Wednesday.
Chytil, 23, who could have become a restricted free agent after this season, is having his best season with his NHL career highs in goals (22), assists (20) and points (42) in 66 games.
The team announced the agreement Wednesday night. He will count just under $4.44 million annually against the salary cap.
The Rangers made Chytil, from the Czech Republic, the 21st overall pick of the 2017 NHL Draft. He has collected 135 points (64 goals, 71 assists) in 319 regular-season games, and nine points (seven goals, two assists) in 23 playoff games.
