New York is making it official.

The Rangers on Thursday announced they have agreed to terms with forward Kaapo Kakko on his entry-level contract.

Kakko, a Finland native, was selected second overall in last month's draft behind Jack Hughes, who went to the Devils at No. 1.

Terms of the deal were not revealed.

Kakko, 18, had 22 goals and 38 points in 45 games with TPS in Finland's Liiga last season. He totaled the third-best scoring season by an under-18 player in Liiga history.

He also added six goals and one assist in 10 games as he helped Finland take home gold at the world hockey championship earlier this year.
