2012 NHL Free Agency: Taylor Pyatt Agrees To Deal With New York Rangers, According To Report

The New York Rangers signed forward Taylor Pyatt on Tuesday to a two-year, $3.1 million contract, according to a report (via Pro Hockey Talk).

The 11-year veteran has spent the last three seasons with the Phoenix Coyotes scoring an average of 13 goals per season, though his total fell to a low of nine goals with Phoenix last season as his ice time fell. In the playoffs last season, Pyatt had four goals and two assists for Phoenix. For his career, Pyatt has scored 130 goals to go with 134 assists. He hasn't been much of a factor on the power-play since he was with the Canucks in 2006-2009.

The Rangers have been seeking to upgrade their offense. Pyatt, a first-round pick of the New York islanders in 1999, may be a piece of the puzzle. His declining production, though, tells you he isn't the entire answer.
