Rangers Extend Mike Sauer & Artem Anisimov

(Update 12:25pm ET):

The Rangers also extended center Artem Anisimov for an additional two years. Ansimov will make $1.875M per year (Link).

According to Larry Brooks:
Rangers have signed restricted FA D Michael Sauer to 2 yr deal worth $1.25M per
When it comes to things like this Brooks is usually very accurate, so I have no doubt that the Rangers hvae re-signed Sauer. A two year deal at $1.25M per year seems very fair for both sides and a very reasonable cap hit for Sauer who was very good on the blue line for the Rangers in his rookie season last year. The thing I like about Sauer is that he's not flashy, gets the job done defensively and is one of the first guys in to back up a teammate.

When this contract expires in two years, Sauer will once again be a RFA with arbitration rights.

Now let's get the rest of those RFAs signed (Anisimov,  Callahan & Dubinsky).
