The New York Rangers announced a one-year contract extension Tuesday for defenseman Libor Hajek.

Terms were not disclosed but multiple outlets reported Hajek will earn $800,000 for the 2022-23 season.

Hajek, 24, posted one assist in 17 games for the Rangers last season. He added two assists in five games with the AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack.

A second-round pick by the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2016, Hajek was traded to the Rangers in February 2018.

He has amassed 11 points (three goals, eight assists) in 94 NHL games, all with New York.
