The Rangers have re-signed 28-year-old defenseman Steve Eminger to a one-year contract worth $750,000, bringing back the unrestricted free agent for a third straight season with the Blueshirts.

Eminger’s re-signing guarantees the return of seven of the Rangers’ top eight defensemen from last season – a number that includes Michael Sauer, who remains out indefinitely with concussion symptoms. That number is expected to rise to eight-of-eight defensemen back, but 22-year-old restricted free agent Michael Del Zotto has not re-signed with the team yet.
