In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

No stars from the Ranger prospects who saw action on Saturday evening.  Just two assists on the evening from the five prospects who played.

K’Andre Miller set up Wisconsin’s first goal but his Badgers played to a 2-2 overtime tie with Michigan. The Badgers did pick up the extra point by winning the shootout round. Miller fed Ty Emberson for a power-play goal

Miller’s assist was his eighth and his 10th overall point. Miller is third in scoring for the Badgers with a 2-8-10 mark as he had one shot, a -1 and an interference minor.

Riley Hughes set up Alex Newhook’s goal just 42 seconds into the second period as their Victoria Grizzlies knocked off the Nanaimo Clippers 4-2. Hughes earned his 14th assist on the play to give him a 14-14-28 total for the season.

Joey Keane was scoreless on three shots and a +2 as his Barrie Colts spanked the Guelph Storm 8-2.

Tyler Nanne saw his four-game scoring streak stopped as his Minnesota Golden Gophers dropped a 4-2 contest to the Michigan State Spartans. Nanne was held to just one shot and a -1.

Morgan Barron and his Cornell Big Red paid their annual visit to Madison Square Garden, this year facing the Harvard Crimson. Barron and friends let a close game get away from them and lost 4-1.  Cornell scored first but Harvard responded with four unanswered goals as the two ECAC teams hooked up in a non-conference matchup.

Tough game for Barron who was held scoreless on three shots with a -1 and was 2-6 on faceoffs.
