Jonny Brodzinski has signed a two-year, one-way contract at $787,500 per year, the New York Rangers announced today. For Brodzinski, this is his first one-way contract, meaning he will be paid at the agreed-upon salary, regardless of whether he plays with the NHL club or in the AHL. The Ham Lake, MN native was originally drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in 2013 and has been with the Rangers since 2020.

Brodzinski has skated in 37 games for the Rangers this season, notching 4 goals and 11 assists for 15 points. He has come on of late since finding a home centering the third line between Kappo Kakko and Will Cuylle. Coach Peter Laviolette has been praising the members of that line publicly and has openly discussed finding ways to get them more ice time.

According to SNY, “They’ve been a real positive factor,” Laviolette said. “There’s a good blend there with their skillsets. They’ve done a good job of creating, and it’s not just the goals that they’ve scored, they’ve been contributing a ton of positives other than on the scoreboard as well.”

The contract extension comes with several weeks left before the NHL trade deadline and could shape the decisions the Rangers make ahead of their playoff push. The Rangers are currently on an 8-game winning streak and remain atop the Metropolitan division with 77 points. Recent rumors have the Rangers looking at potential third-line centers on other teams, which would impact Brodzinski’s playing time.
