Performances Improved But Not Wins

In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

It was another frustrating evening for the New York Ranger prospects as their individual performances were better but it did not mean their teams were able to turn them into wins. Once again on Friday night the best effort by a Ranger prospect was turned in by the 2015 seventh round pick Adam Huska of the Green Bay Gamblers of …

Very Disappointing Wednesday

In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

Not sure why the New York Ranger prospects and their teams are struggling but this so far has been a very disappointing start to the prospect season.

Slowly There Is Improvement

In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

It was good to see the New York Ranger prospects show some improvement over the weekend as Sunday saw two more prospects stand out. Now the hope is for this to become something that happens with more consistency.

Two Solid Efforts

In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

Saturday featured just two solid efforts from the New York Ranger prospects as most teams took Halloween off rather than compete with the holiday. Ryan Gropp (2015 Second) earned himself the game’s first star as his Seattle Thunderbirds started a road trip with a 5-2 win over the Kootenay Ice. Gropp had a 2-1-3 effort starting with a first period …

An Inconsistent Prospect Update

In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

When writing up these posts on the New York Ranger prospects, it asks for a focus keyword and for this post that keyword has to be “inconsistent.” Right now at best two prospects can be satisfied with their overall play. The “hottest” prospect right now is goalie Adam Huska (2015 Seventh) who after stopping 28 out of 30 shots to …

The Scoresheet Did Not Tell The Story

In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

There was just three games on the Sunday New York Rangers prospect schedule all in the WHL and the outcomes were mixed but this was a day when the scoresheet did not tell the story about the games. There will be days like this where players will have winning efforts but the stat sheet never will give them the proper …

It Was A Goalie’s Night

In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

Saturday night was a night for the New York Ranger goalie’s prospects as they led the way to wins by their junior teams.

Wednesday Prospects

In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

Just like Tuesday there were just two New York Ranger prospects in action on Wednesday evening and like Tuesday, the action was in the WHL.

The Sunday Rangers Prospect Report

In Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

With only three games on the schedule, Sunday was a rather quiet day for the New York Ranger prospects. Only Cristoval Nieves (2012 second) and his Michigan Wolverines saw victory for their efforts on Sunday. Michigan which is ranked 11th in the current USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine College Hockey poll earned a 3-2 win over Mercyhurst to sweep the weekend …

The Weekend Prospect Report

In Prospect Park by Dan Akeson

The Saturday New York Rangers prospect report is not going to put many smiles on anyone’s faces as it was not the best of nights for the prospects. Only three of the six who saw action played well which is not a habit we want to see forming among the prospects. Ryan Gropp (2015 second) was one prospect who did …
