Alexis Lafreniere, the No. 1 pick of the 2020 draft, signed his three-year, entry-level contract with the New York Rangers on Monday. The deal is for $925,000 annually, the maximum allowed for rookies in the CBA and in line with other recent top picks.
Lafreniere is represented by Emilie Castonguay, the first woman to represent an NHL No. 1 pick as an NHLPA-certified agent.
