Rangers Sign 2008 2nd Round Pick Derek Stepan

According to Larry Brooks of the NY Post, the New York Rangers today came to an agreement with 2008 second round pick Derek Stepan.
per the collective bargaining agreement, (the contract) cannot be registered with the NHL until July 1. It will be a three-year Entry Level deal expected to be close to the $875,000 base salary cap.
It's unlikely that Stepan will be wearing a Rangers sweater this upcoming season. Stepan will likely continue to develop in either the WHL (juniors) or the AHL. Stepan spent the last two seasons playing college hockey at Wisconsin.
