What The Rangers Kids Can Bring-Part 2

With the New York Rangers in a bind with cap space currently, chances are they will take a chance bringing up some younger players to fill in roles when needed. They need younger players to step up, more on offense currently, however, there are still plenty of defensive prospects who could see some time over the course of the season. Here is a breakdown of what you might see out...

Quick notes: Skjei returning to NCAA; No “real” offer made to Stralman

Some quick notes (before I head off to Aruba…yea, be jealous) about the prospects, free agency, and those who left the Rangers. Brady Skjei, who by all accounts appears to be NHL ready, will be returning to the University of Minnesota for his junior year. Skjei is a first pairing defenseman with the club, and […] The post Quick notes: Skjei returning to NCAA; No “real” offer...

Skjei Headed Back to Minnesota; Duclair Has Groin Injury; Rangers Sign Tarnasky; Kovalev Retires & Giroux “The Assman”

With Marc Staal in the final year of his contract and his future with the Rangers in doubt, Blueshirts management has been hoping that 2012 1st round pick Brady Skjei would leave the University of Minnesota early this summer to begin his pro career in the AHL. Apparently, Skjei had other plans as last night he confirmed that he’ll be going back to school for his junior season ...

Prospect Camp Days 2 & 3 Highlights

Obviously, with the free agency insanity I’ve been remiss in updating the goings-on at the Rangers prospect development camp the last two days. So here’s a little compilation. Day 2 & 3 scrimmage & shootout highlights… One guy who I feel gets over-looked by Rangers fans (myself included) when discussing possible prospects legitimately vying for a roster spot in training...

Prospect Camp Day 1 Highlights

Before I get to the insanity that is Day 1 of free agency, I figured I’d start the day with some video, interviews and recaps from Day 1 of the Rangers prospect camp. Obviously the highlight of the day was the scrimmage… …really not much to take out of a 1:30 highlight package, except that this year’s second round pick Brandon Halverson didn’t exactly look like Brodeur...

Prospect Update: Skjei Scores Three (With Video) ; Duclair MVP Finalist

Defensively efficient prospects unfairly take the backseat to the skilled offensive guys. A three-point game and a nice move in the shootout makes for a good highlight video whereas a couple good pokechecks and neutral zone interceptions do not. It’s easy to look at a statsheet and see that a player had two goals, and therefore surely did something right. But there’s little in...

Michigan solidly defeats Gophers men's hockey

One night after clinching the Big Ten conference's regular-season title, Minnesota found itself in a huge early hole. Host Michigan blitzed the visitors to the tune of...

Gophers eyeing initial Big Ten regular-season title

MINNEAPOLIS -- High above the ice at Mariucci Arena hang many maroon and gold banners with different years printed on to indicate various achievements in Minnesota's hockey history. Fourteen of them indicate WCHA regular-season championships. As the Gophers prepare to face Michigan this weekend, they're hoping to add a banner of a different sort to the rafters: Big Ten champs...

Gophers excited to take on Big Ten hockey newcomer Penn State

MINNEAPOLIS -- A five-team college hockey league didn't make much sense, so the Big Ten couldn't start a hockey conference without a sixth member. That's where Penn State came along by creating a new program, and Big Ten hockey was born this year. The Nittany Lions became a Division I program for the 2012-13 season after years of playing as a club hockey team. That meant...

Aside from three straight USA wins, one thing that has been very nice to watch over the past few days is the impressive play of the Rangers prospects in action in the 2014 World Junior Championship. Both Brady Skjei (USA, 2012 1st) and Pavel Buchnevich (Russia, 2013 3rd) have had strong tournaments thus far, and have been key cogs as both teams look towards the elimination round...

Nieves, Skjei make final USA evaluation roster

Boo Nieves (2012, 2nd) and Brady Skjei (2012, 1st) both made it to the final round of cuts for Team USA for the World Juniors. The team still needs to be cut by six forwards and four defensemen (and a goalie), so Skjei and Nieves haven’t made the roster yet. Skjei was one of the final cuts last year for the WJC team, but he has been impressive this year during the tryouts. Nieves...
