Four New York Ranger prospects saw action on Saturday with a mixed bag of results. One win, one overtime tie, and two losses did not make for a productive evening. The Ranger prospects playing in the NCAA are beginning their season this weekend with most playing exhibition games.

Riley Hughes saw his four-game scoring streak (2-5-7) come to an end as his Victoria Grizzlies won their fifth straight game 3-2 in overtime over the Salmon Arm Silverbacks. Hughes has been playing well as part of the Grizzlies top line. Overall Hughes is 4-6-10 in 11 games.

Joey Keane had a primary assist but it was not enough to prevent his Barrie Colts from dropping a 4-3 decision to the Ottawa 67s. Keane would earn the primary assist on Barrie’s first goal, a power play goal in the first period. Keane had the assist on four shots as the Colts saw their winless streak extend to three games (0-2-1-0). Keane is 1-6-7 in six games with a +7.

Nico Gross was scoreless as his Oshawa Generals dropped a 4-2 decision to the Owen Sound Attack. The Generals gave up three goals in the games first 7:18 and never fully recovered. Gross was a -1 on one shot as the Generals fall to 3-3 on the season.

Tyler Nanne made his season debut as part of the first defensive pair as his 13th Minnesota Golden Gophers played to a 1-1 overtime tie with number one Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs. For the game, Nanne was scoreless on four shots.

Nanne who was the Rangers 2014 fifth-round pick is entering his junior season for the Gophers. As an upperclassman, Nanne will be looked for to put up some points from the blueline.

Same two teams will face off on Sunday night starting at 8 PM ET and can be seen using the Fox Sports Go app.
