Ex-Rangers D Girardi retires after 13 seasons

— New York Rangers (@NYRangers) September 20, 2019

The 35-year-old defenseman entered the league with New York as an undrafted free agent in 2006 and appeared in 788 regular-season games with the Rangers, helping them reach the playoffs 10 times. He signed with Tampa Bay as a free agent in 2017 and had 10 goals and 24 assists the past two seasons.

In addition to ranking 30th all time in playoff games played by a defenseman, Girardi blocked more shots -- 1,954, nearly 1,700 of them with the Rangers -- than any other player since the NHL began keeping the statistic for the 2005-06 season.

The Rangers announced Friday that they have agreed to terms with free-agent defenseman Tony DeAngelo, who had four goals and 26 assists for New York last season.
