Veteran forward Jonny Brodzinski, who’s 30, just got a sweet deal. He’s staying with the New York Rangers, thanks to a two-year extension they announced on Thursday. It’s been a bit of a surprise season for him, and now, he’s not going anywhere for a while.

The deal? It’s worth $1.575 million, with an AAV of $787,500. That’s according to CapFriendly. And it starts with the 2024-25 NHL season.

Brodzinski’s journey to this point is pretty interesting. Drafted by the Los Angeles Kings back in 2013, he’s mostly been an AHL guy. He’s bounced around – from the Kings to the San Jose Sharks, and now, the Rangers. Over 313 AHL games, he’s scored 126 goals and racked up 267 points.

This season started in Hartford with the Rangers’ affiliate. But then, on Nov. 4, he got the call for a game against the Minnesota Wild. Since then? He’s been making his mark.

So far, he’s hit career highs – four goals, 11 assists, and 15 points in 37 games. Not bad, right? He’s been a solid player, especially five-on-five, and he’s been doing it in a bottom-six role.

Lately, he’s been playing with Kaapo Kakko. Yeah, the former No. 2 overall pick. And guess what? They’re clicking, creating some real chemistry down the lineup.
