I noticed so many threads that turn into prospect chatter, that I thought we should have a thread for it. I posted the 3/4 report from the Rangers website below. 


 

Three Stars of the Week

  • Yegor Rykov recorded three assists/points, posted a plus-one rating, and averaged 22:52 of ice time per game over four playoff games with HC Sochi during the week. Rykov led HC Sochi in ice time in each of the final three games during the week, logging more than 23:00 of ice time in each game, and he ranks ninth among KHL defensemen in average ice time thus far in the playoffs. In addition, Rykov leads all KHL defensemen younger than 22 years old in average ice time thus far during the Gagarin Cup Playoffs. Among all KHL players younger than 22 years old (forwards and defensemen), Rykov is tied for first in assists and points in the playoffs this year, and he leads KHL defensemen younger than 22 years old in both categories. He is tied for second among all KHL defensemen in assists and is tied for fourth among all KHL defensemen in points in the playoffs this year.
  • Vitali Kravtsov registered an assist in Game 2 of Traktor's playoff series against Avtomobilist on Feb. 28, and he has recorded eight shots on goal through the first three games of the series. The Rangers' first round pick (ninth overall) in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, who led all KHL players younger than 20 years old in goals (eight), assists (13), and points (21) during the regular season in 2018-19, is one of six KHL players who are in their U20 season or younger who have tallied a point in the 2019 Gagarin Cup Playoffs. Kravtsov has registered 13 points (seven goals, six assists) in 25 career Gagarin Cup Playoff games; last year, Kravtsov registered six goals and five assists for 11 points in the playoffs, and his 11 points were the most a KHL junior player (younger than 20 years old) registered in one playoff year in the league's history, eclipsing the previous record of nine held by Evgeny Kuznetsov and Valeri Nichushkin.
  • Joey Keane agreed to terms on an entry-level contract with the Rangers on Mar. 4. The Rangers' third round pick (88th overall) in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft also recorded a goal and posted a plus-three rating on Mar. 2 at Hamilton. Keane has skated in 61 games in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) this season with the Barrie Colts and London Knights, registering eight goals and 29 assists for 37 points, along with a plus-14 rating and 91 penalty minutes. He is one of 11 OHL defensemen who have registered 37 or more points and have posted a plus-14 rating or better thus far this season. Keane ranks third among OHL defensemen in penalty minutes, ranks 10th among OHL defensemen in shots on goal (167), is tied for 11th among OHL defensemen in power play assists (13), is tied for 13th among OHL defensemen in power play goals (four), and is tied for 17th among OHL defensemen in assists and points this season.

Quick Hits

The Rangers' sixth round pick (174th overall) in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft has registered a point 15 of the last 19 games, and he has recorded 23 points (eight goals, 15 assists) over the span. Barron has registered 30 points (13 goals, 17 assists) in 29 games with Cornell this season, and he has tallied a point in 20 of those 29 games (Cornell has posted a 14-4-2 record in games which he has recorded a point this season). He leads Cornell in several categories this season, including goals, points, power play goals (six), and shots on goal (131). Barron also ranks second on Cornell in assists and ranks third in plus/minus rating (plus-10) in 2018-19. He ranks third in the NCAA in shots on goal per game this season (4.52). Barron is averaging 1.03 points per game in 2018-19, which is tied for 10th in points per game among NCAA players who are either in their freshman or sophomore year. He has already established collegiate career-highs in goals, assists, and points this season.

That's pretty cool. I haven't seen the kid play at all, but I remember the only two other players that I've heard this of were Paul Coffey and Kris Letang.

Keane was a bit of a reach pick at the time but it seems like he's shown enough to management to sign him.

Miller has been out a long time. Barron would be huge if he can be that big center to fill a top 9 role. He's had a great year. Gropp has been so disappointing. Still holding out hope he's a late bloomer. Lemieux with his relentless play has seemed to light a fire under Buchnevich. It would be nice if Andersson could be that kind of player. Maybe that the type Gropp needs to play with. A fiery center to get his game going. However, I suspect he's a total bust at this point.

Earlier in the season I would have said that when he finished out his season he should seriously consider turning pro. After the injury and the missed games, I'm not so sure. He certainly has the talent to turn pro at this point but I wouldn't be surprised if he goes one more year to get back on track. He's really young still, especially for a defenseman, he has plenty of time either way.

Rangers Prospect Report 3/11/19

Vitali Kravtsov tallied an assist, recorded four shots on goal, and posted a plus-two rating in Game 4 of Traktor's Quarterfinals series against Avtomobilist; the game was Kravtsov's final contest of the KHL season, as Traktor was eliminated. The Rangers' first round pick (ninth overall) in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft tied for the team lead in assists (two), ranked second on Traktor in shots on goal (12), and tied for second in points (two) and plus/minus rating (plus-one) in the playoffs this year. Kravtsov is tied for first among KHL players younger than 20 years old in assists and points in the playoffs this year. Kravtsov skated in 50 regular season games with Traktor in 2018-19, registering eight goals and 13 assists for 21 points, along with six penalty minutes. He led all KHL players younger than 20 years old in goals, assists, and points this season. Kravtsov's 21 points in 2018-19 are tied for the ninth-most by a KHL player younger than 20 years old in league history (tied with Artemi Panarin, who recorded 21 points in 2010-11), and his 13 assists in 2018-19 are tied for the eighth-most by a KHL player younger than 20 years old in the league's history. In addition, Kravtsov represented Traktor at the 2019 KHL All-Star Game. He tied for the team lead in game-winning goals (three), ranked third on Traktor in points and shots on goal (114), tied for third in assists, and tied for fourth in goals during the regular season in 2018-19. Kravtsov has recorded 14 points (seven goals, seven assists) in 26 career playoff games in the KHL. During the 2018 Gagarin Cup Playoffs, he tallied 11 points (six goals, five assists) in 16 games; in the process, he recorded more playoff points in one year than any other teenager has in their career in KHL history. Kravtsov's seven career playoff assists and 14 career playoff points are the most by a teenager in KHL history, and his seven career playoff goals are the second-most in KHL history, trailing only Evgeny Kuznetsov (eight).

K'Andre Miller's freshman season concluded on Mar. 10 when the University of Wisconsin was eliminated by Penn State in the Big Ten Quarterfinals. Miller, who missed the final nine games of the season due to injury, registered 22 points (five goals, 17 assists) and posted a plus-seven rating in 2018-19. Among NCAA freshmen defensemen who have skated in at least 25 games this season, Miller ranks first in assists per game (0.65) and points per game (0.85). In addition, in the 26 games Miller played with Wisconsin this season, he was on the ice for 37 of the 76 goals the team scored (48.7%).

Here is how Miller, who finished the 2018-19 season with 26 games played, compares to other defensemen recently selected in the first round of the NHL Entry Draft through their first 26 career games in the NCAA:

Morgan Barron finished the regular season with 30 points (13 goals, 17 assists) in 29 games with Cornell, and Cornell will begin the ECAC Quarterfinals on Mar. 15. Entering the ECAC Quarterfinals, the Rangers' sixth round pick (174th overall) in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft has registered a point 15 of the last 19 games, and he has recorded 23 points (eight goals, 15 assists) over the span. Barron has tallied a point in 20 of 29 games in 2018-19 (Cornell has posted a 14-4-2 record in games which he has recorded a point this season). He leads Cornell in several categories this season, including goals, points, power play goals (six), and shots on goal (131). Barron also ranks second on Cornell in assists and ranks third in plus/minus rating (plus-10) in 2018-19. He ranks third in the NCAA in shots on goal per game this season (4.52). Barron is averaging 1.03 points per game in 2018-19, and he is tied for eighth in points per game among NCAA players who are either in their freshman or sophomore year.

Quick Hits

  • Tarmo Reunanen led Lukko with 24:36 of ice time on Mar. 9 against KooKoo. The Rangers' fourth round pick (98th overall) in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft has logged at least 24:00 of ice time in 18 of the last 29 games. Reunanen ranks 12th in Liiga in average ice time in 2018-19 (21:16), and he also ranks second among players who are in their U21 season or younger in the league in average ice time this season.

Reunanen's 23 points this season are tied for the seventh-most by a U21 defenseman in Liiga over the last 10 seasons (since 2008-09). Over the span, only four U21 defensemen in Liiga have tallied more than 23 points in a season (Sami Vatanen, Esa Lindell, Ville Pokka, and Sami Niku).

Lemieux 5 points in 7 games. Hayes 5 points in 6 games.

Hopefully, Andersson will start to follow the path of Lemieux and be getting it together around his age. Starting to get excited to see Rykov. Heard some good things.

Figured Miller would go back to college which he should. Barron signing would be great. However, somebody at the top better unfuk the idiots running and coaching the Pack.

They just did a prospect video on Barron. It does lead me to wonder if there is a plan to sign him right after his season is over. They don't usually do video features for 6th round picks who are not expected to sign.

So far, good trade. Can't say the same about the Zucc trade. Since he's gone, Kreider and Zibanejad have 4 assists combined.

I think both of those guys mailed it in which obviously pissed Quinn off. I think getting rid of Staal or Shattenkirk is the number 1 priority and using that money to sign Panarin. I believe Kravtsov will have a very good rookie year next season playing with some legit talent. Maybe 45-50 points.

Great Trade! Keep in mind, he is a rental, Hayes walks in a few weeks, no way he signs to play there, no way.
