Rangers fans can breathe a little easier today as Michael Del Zotto is just about back in the fold.

TSN’s Bob McKenzie reports the Rangers and their restricted free agent defenseman have tentatively agreed on a two-year contract. Larry Brooks of the New York Post reports the deal is worth around $2.55 million per season.

While the deal is unsigned as of now, Del Zotto is at Rangers camp getting his medicals done. It was only yesterday that Rangers GM Glen Sather said it was imperative to have a deal done by today and to get into camp. It looks like that’s just what’s happening.

Update (11:35 a.m. ET): The Rangers tweeted confirmation they’ve signed Del Zotto. McKenzie confirms it’s a two-year deal worth $2.55 million per year.
