NEW YORK (AP) The Rangers have agreed to terms with forward Josh Jooris and restricted free agent defensemen Dylan McIlrath and Tommy Hughes.

Jooris joins the Rangers from the Calgary Flames. The undrafted 26-year-old out of Union College had four goals and nine assists in 59 games last season and has 16 goals and 21 assists in 119 NHL games.

McIlrath, 24, settled on a one-year deal to avoid an arbitration hearing. The 2010 first-round pick broke through to become an NHL defenseman last season, putting up four points in 34 games.

Hughes, 24, had nine points in 59 games for the Hartford WolfPack of the American Hockey League last season.
