Summer 2014 New York Rangers’ Prospect Rankings: 36-25

I published my version of the New York Rangers’ prospect rankings in early January, which you can view here. A lot has changed since then. The prospects have since played for four-to-six months, depending on their schedule, and thus all have developed (or failed to) in different ways over that time. Aside from that, the Rangers […]

The Clear-Cut Case of Tanner Glass; He’s Not Good At Hockey

Earlier today Kevin wrote a piece in which he broke down what he called the “curious case” of Tanner Glass. Largely, I understand what he was trying to do. Just as in my “Retain or Release” articles, Kevin wanted to present the best arguments he could to, while highlighting some issues, bring hope for success […]

Rangers Boost Hartford Wolf Pack With Flurry of Signings

The New York Rangers let a lot of players at the AHL level with expiring contracts walk, meaning they had plenty of spots to fill. They largely did so yesterday, signing as many as six players who could potentially start the season with the Hartford Wolf Pack. Here is a quick rundown on those players. […]

142nd Overall: Rangers Select Defenseman Tyler Nanne

With the Rangers’ third pick of the fifth round, and presumably their final pick of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, they selected Tyler Nanne, a defenseman from the Edina High School and who is committed to Ohio State University. Nanne, 18, is the third defensemen the Rangers selected this draft. He’s also the fourth American, […]

140th Overall: Rangers Select Defenseman Daniel Walcott

The New York Rangers selected their second defensemen of the draft, Daniel Walcott, with the 140th overall pick. Walcott, like Nejezchleb, is a bit older. He was undrafted in the QMJHL draft. He played club hockey for Lindenwood University, a very tiny school, during the 2012-2013 season. He was then signed by the Blainville-Broisbrand Armada […]

122nd Overall: Rangers Select Left Winger Richard Nejezchleb

The Rangers have drafted their second forward from the Western Hockey League. This one is Richard Nejezchleb of the Brandon Wheat Kings. A rather strange pick from the Rangers, though that’s not to mean I think it’s a bad one. Nejezchleb turned 20 in May and was passed over in the past two drafts. Last […]

118th Overall: Rangers Select Goaltender Igor Shestyorkin

The Rangers have taken their second goaltender of the draft. This time, it’s Igor Shestyorkin (or Americanized to “Shesterkin”) of SKA St. Petersberg in the KHL. Shestyorkin mostly played in the MHL (the junior league for the KHL) and had a 1.42 GAA and .947 Save %. He got a few starts in the KHL, […]

104th Overall Pick: Rangers Select Defenseman Ryan Mantha

The Rangers drafted their first defenseman of the draft with their 104th overall pick, and it’s Ryan Mantha out of the USHL. Unrelated to Detroit Red Wings’ prospect Anthony Mantha, I’ve never seen him play, so I can’t comment on his game. Here’s what I can tell you, though. He’s absolutely massive; 6’5 and 225 […]

85th Overall: Rangers Select Forward Keegan Iverson

With the 85th overall pick, the Rangers selected Keegan Iverson, a forward who plays for the Portland Winterhawks. Iverson, 18, was once seen as a 1st-round talent, possibly even top-10. He has failed to translate his raw talents into high-end production in the WHL, however. His 2012-2013 season was disastrous, with him scoring only four […]
