Grant Trying to Make Name for Himself

grantIn day 3 of the Rangers “20 Prospects in 20 Days” the team takes a look at Tommy Grant, a undrafted 24-year-old from the University of Alaska at Anchorage who the Rangers signed this spring.

Grant, who was at Rangers prospects camp last season, had 3a in seven regular season games and 1g, 1a in six playoffs games with the Whale after signing.

“We’re all excited, going forward, to see him at camp and to see what kind of adjustments he makes after playing in the pro game a little bit,” said Jeff Gorton, the Rangers’ Assistant Director, Player Personnel. “The Connecticut coaches saw the offensive upside, and they saw some speed and some hands. And for an offensive guy, he was good in his own end. He’s also very competitive, and they were pretty excited about that.”

Here’s Grant, who will again be at prospect’s camp, said about adjusting to hockey life after college…

“In preparation for camp and Traverse City, I wanted to be prepared and get used to playing pro hockey,” said Grant of his AHL stint. “There are a bunch of little things that go along with being out of college now that I wanted to get used to. And I definitely think playing there at the end of the year was very important to me and gave me a taste of what’s coming up this year.”

…getting his feet wet this season with the Whale should go along way in his development this season.
