New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has agreed to terms with goaltender Scott Stajcer.

Stajcer, 19, will participate in the 2011 CHL Memorial Cup in Mississauga, Ontario, after capturing the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Championship with the Owen Sound Attack. Stajcer led the Attack and ranked fourth in the OHL with a career-high, eight playoff wins, posting an 8-4-0 mark with a 2.79 goals against average and a .909 save percentage in 13 postseason contests.

He also ranked fifth in the league in playoff minutes played (688), sixth in saves (321), seventh in goals against average, and eighth in save percentage.  Stajcer posted an 8-1-0 record with a 2.08 goals against average in nine starts to begin the 2011 OHL Playoffs, recording all four victories in both the OHL Western Conference Semifinals against Plymouth and OHL Western Conference Finals against Windsor.

Scott Stajcer, a 2009 fifth-round draft pick, has played goal for the Rangers at two Traverse City Prospects tournaments in Traverse City, Mich., and won both of his starts at the tournament in 2010.

The 6-3, 195-pounder has appeared in 110 career OHL contests with Owen Sound, posting a record of 47-44-12 along with a 3.57 goals against average, a .900 save percentage and two shutouts.

Stajcer posted his first career shutout with a 36-save performance on December 6, 2009 at Kingston, and recorded a career-high, 49 saves in a 4-3 win at Barrie on December 31, 2009.  He led Owen Sound and ranked 12th in the league with a career-high, .906 save percentage in 2008-09.  Stajcer registered 24 saves in a 5-3 win vs. Niagara while making his OHL debut on November 17, 2007.
