Big Contract Extension for Rangers Center Filip Chytil

Filip Chytil turned a career-best season into a contract extension with the Rangers. 

The Czech center signed a four-year deal with an average annual value of $4.438 million to remain a Blueshirt through the 2026-27 season, according to a source. 

With the deal, the Rangers solidified their top three centers for the foreseeable future. 

Chytil was set be a restricted free agent with arbitration rights. His new contract covers the next two years of his RFA status. 

It is believed the Rangers are aiming to keep all of their young core. They will negotiate with RFA’s K’Andre Miller and Alexis Lafreniere on their new contracts soon.
