Rangers sign Kyle Jean

This news broke yesterday, but it’s now official that the Rangers have signed prospect Kyle Jean. Jean was a non-roster invitee to the Rangers development camp, and clearly impressed the organization with the way he played in camp.

The 22-year old forward played the last two seasons with Lake Superior State in the CCHA, where he put together a total line of 13-25-36 in 77 games played. Prior to his college stint, Jean played in the NAHL for three seasons, where he put together a total line of 44-36-80 in 136 games.

Jean likely won’t make an NHL impact for a few years, but this is a key depth signing for the CT Whale, who were losing five forwards to free agency.

    Good for him. Maybe he will be another Dan Girardi.

    Any reports on what type of player he is? Is he going to go to the OHL or WHL or straight to the Whale?

      Hey played for the LSSU Lakers, the plan apparently is to get him right into the ECHL Or right to the whale

    Kyle Jean is a 6’4 212 power forward type. You can see him numerous times on the Rangers web site. Under prospect camp highlights. Hwears the number 53

    Saw this kid every day at camp last week, liked him. He’s big but he can skate, quick acceleration & strong on his feet. Scored a couple of pretty goals with a quick release wrist shot, has a chance to become an NHL player after some time in Hartford.

    I also hope they give Myles Bell, Brandon Devlin, Igor Goloukov and Nikita Zaytsev a chance. All of them look good.
