Despite a strong postseason performance that helped lead the Rangers to the Eastern Conference finals, veteran winger Ruslan Fedotenko will not be returning to New York next year.
The 33-year-old forward agreed to terms Thursday with the Philadelphia Flyers on a one-year deal worth $1.75 million, a source confirmed to ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun.
Fedotenko joins the Flyers for a second tour; the two-time Stanley Cup winner began his career in Philadelphia, where he played from 2000-02.
The Kiev, Ukraine native had nine goals and 11 assists in 73 games for the Rangers this past season, not including the two goals and five assists recorded in 20 playoff games.
In other Rangers news, 25-year-old restricted free agent defenseman Anton Stralman was one of 16 NHL players to file for salary arbitration.
