…must be such a whirlwind for the Rangers draft picks. Just days after being drafted, they’re in New York taking the ice at the Rangers practice facility with the rest of the organization’s top prospects, all while under the watchful eye of management. No pressure kids.

…while it’s impossible to take anything away from a prospect’s performance this week, I am especially looking forward to updates & video on Andersson, Buchnevic, Duclair, Haggerty, Iverson and Skjei. I’ll obviously also have my eye on the Rangers first pick of this year’s draft, goaltender Brandon Halverson.

…one interesting omission from the roster is 2012 2nd round pick Boo Nieves. The Syracuse, NY native had a breakout freshman year at Michigan in 2012-13 (29 points in 40 games & named a CCHA All-Rookie honorable mention), however, he seemed to suffer a sophomore slump last year as he recorded just 22 points (3g, 19a) in 34 games. He did have 12 points (2g, 10a) in his final 10 games. Not sure if his struggles were the reason for the snub or possibly because NCAA players must pay their own way and for some reason wasn’t able to swing it. Nieves did participate in the prospect camp last season.
