    NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Rangers have released a press statement on Friday announcing the re-signing of two more players. Defensemen Freddy Meyer and goaltender Tim Thomas have agreed to deals that will keep them in New York beyond this season. Financial terms were not disclosed by the team.

    Meyer receives a three year extention after impressing the Rangers and showing much promise. He was a 9th round draft choice, 295th overall (undrafted in the NHL) by the Rangers in 2001, before the league shortened the draft to seven rounds. He was the second-to-last player selected that year. The organization has been pleased with his development and see him playing a role in the future of the team and possibly earning a spot among the top six defensemen come next season if things go well in training camp.

    Tim Thomas has re-signed with the team for two years after holding out as an unsigned RFA. With backup goaltender Corey Schwab planning on retiring following this HFNHL season, Thomas is expected to compete with Scott Clemmenson for the backup goaltender job next fall.
