Hockey’s holiday break came to an end with the start of the 2016 World Under-20 Championships being held in Finland. Today also marks the return of the prospects playing in the Canadian juniors and because of the holidays this will be a rare time when we see NCAA action during the week and not just on the weekends. However we …

A Way Better Night

In Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

On the last evening before the holiday break begins, the two New York Ranger prospects who played had a way better night than they did on Friday evening. Just Ryan Gropp (2015 Second) of the Seattle Thunderbirds and Brad Morrison (2015 Fourth) of the Prince George Cougars were in action and the duo combined for four goals and two assists …

Back To Back Zeros

In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

It is the middle of December and already we are running out of ways to praise the 2015 seventh round draft pick goalie Adam Huska of the Green Bay Gamblers; it is even harder after Huska posted “back to back” shutouts. Maybe because Huska is Slovakian that he does not realize that seventh round draft picks are supposed to be …

The Friday Night Report

In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

It was an interesting mix of results for the New York Ranger prospects on Friday night as it went from good to bad. It starts out with the prospect that is fast making Gordie Clark and his scouts look really good in Adam Huska (2015 Seventh) of the Green Bay Gamblers who for the third time this season posted a …

Streaking Anyone? (WJC Invites too)

In Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

With just two New York Ranger prospects in action on Tuesday, what was a slow start by many a prospect and his team is giving way to several streaks. Brad Morrison (2015 Fourth) and his Prince George Cougars are a very good example of hot player, hotter team. The Cougars were hosting the Kootenay Ice who were streaking in the …

Goalies Day

In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

Just three New York Ranger prospects saw action on Sunday including both goalies playing in North America with two of them playing key roles in their team’s win and the other putting on a great performance even in a loss. It may have been just three games but they were three good games and all three prospects could have gotten …

Overtime Anyone?

In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

Five New York Ranger prospects saw action on Saturday night with three of their games having to go to overtime before being decided. The best part about Saturday’s report was seeing Cristoval Nieves (2012 Second) as the star of the night. Nieves is in many ways like Chris Kreider, a player whose talent does not always shine through but when …

Almost Perfect

In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

Friday night was an almost perfect evening for the New York Ranger prospects as they went 5-1 in games played. There was some production not as much as we would hope for but it came from players who have not shown up on the scoresheet as much as we had hoped for coming into this season. Steven Fogarty (2011 Third) …

Pretty It Was Not

In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

There are nights where you want to just come away with the two points for the win and never mind if it was pretty. When you or your team is struggling any win will do as in the case of Brandon Halverson (2014 Second) and his Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. Pretty sure if you ask him Halverson will tell you …

Potluck Anyone?

In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

The day after Thanksgiving is known for more than just holiday shopping as it is also a day when many find themselves feasting on a potluck of leftovers. Potluck also seems to be the best way to describe the way Friday night went for the New York Ranger prospects. There was some crunch time offense that determined the outcome of …

Pass the Turkey Please?

In Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

The night before Thanksgiving was not too kind to the New York Ranger prospects as other than one solid performance, the turkey arrived early and the news was not that good. If you want to look at the early leader for our prospect of the year then look no further than Green Bay Gambler’s goalie Adam Huska. The Rangers 2015 …

Triple Tuesday Triumphs

In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

A rare Tuesday with three New York Ranger prospects in action and all three saw their teams come away with Tuesday triumphs. Two of them earned stars for their efforts as the slow start this season appears to disappearing hopefully for good.

One Win Out Of Three Is Bad

In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

With just three games involving New York Ranger prospects played on Sunday, just one win out of the three is a bad result. While the win was OK, the two losses were not. Sergey Zborovskiy (2015 Third) and his Regina Pats got the only win as they defeated the Lethbridge Hurricanes 5-3. Zborovskiy was scoreless for the contest and his …

The Comeback Kids

In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

Friday night was comeback night for the New York Ranger prospects as there were three come from behind wins as the prospects and their teams were 4-1-1 for the night.

The Good And The Bad Prospects

In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

It was another mixed bag for the New York Ranger prospects as Saturday featured the good and the bad of the prospects team play. The biggest headscratcher has to be why only two teams can win on a night these days especially while the schedule remains as light as it has been. There will be some players facing some hard …
