NEW YORK -- The New York Rangers have agreed to terms with free agent forward Alexander Frolov.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed for the 28-year-old veteran, who spent his first seven NHL seasons with the Los Angeles Kings.

Frolov has twice reached the 30-goal plateau, but last season managed just 19 goals and 32 assists for 51 points in 81 games. The goal total was his lowest since he scored 14 in his rookie season of 2002-03. He added a goal and three assists for four points in six playoff games last spring.

"Alex is a highly skilled player who we feel will play a key role in improving our offence and play in all situations," said Rangers president and general manager Glen Sather. "He is strong competitor and has the ability to play either wing position."

In 536 regular-season games, Frolov has 168 goals and 213 assists for 381 points. His best season was 2006-07 when he tallied 35 goals and 36 assists for 71 points.

The Kings selected the Moscow native with the 20th overall pick of the 2000 NHL Entry Draft.
