The New York Rangers and goaltender Henrik Lundqvist have agreed on a new six-year contract.

Lundqvist will earn $6.875 million per year for a total of $41.25 million over the six year period with a limited no-trade clause that would commence in the 2009-10 season.

The Rangers and Lundqvist have been working on a deal since the start of 2008 because the goaltender was on a one-year contract. Without a new deal, the 25-year-old would become a restricted free-agent on July 1.

Lundqvist is 24-21-5 with a 2.37 GAA over his 50 games this season. For his NHL career he is 91-55-22 with a 2.32 GAA over 173 games, all with the Rangers.
