We've been talking a lot about the big name Ranger prospects on the blog lately to keep us occupied during the lockout (St. Croix, JT Miller, McIlrath... etc.) but one name we talked about much, besides getting cut from Team USA, is the Rangers 2012 1st round selection Brady Skjei.
Skjei currently plays for the University of Minnesota Gophers who is ranked first in the country. Following Friday night's 4-3 win, Chris Peters from the United States of Hockey had this to say about Skjei.
@theprospectpark He's been playing like a freshman. People see 1st round and think instant dominance, but he's got a lot of devel time ahead

I'm not sure if the part about Peters saying that Skjei has been playing like a freshman is a slight on the kid
