Around the Farm: Four prospects held off the scoreboard

The Rangers had four prospects in action last night in the NCAA and SEL (Boo Nieves, Steven Fogarty, Oscar Lindberg, Jesper Fasth), and all four were held off the scoreboard for their respective clubs. It’s also worth noting that Brady Skjei was held out of Minnesota’s 5-1 win. It was senior night in Minnesota, so it’s likely he was held out to make room for departing seniors who played their final game.

    Brendan Leipsic, current PTS-leader in WHL, was drafted by Nashville in the 2012-draft in the 3rd round. That pick was originally Rangers’ pick, but NYR got Nashvilles 3rd pick in 2013 in return instead. Smart move by NYR?

      Of course. The Rangers made that trade because they think 2013 is a better draft than 2012. I read somewhere that they got a 2013 pick from Florida for Wolski for the same reason. Besides, scoring like crazy in juniors doesn’t mean much. Just look at Christian Thomas

      WHL is notoriously high scoring. Last year’s leading scorer (Brendan Shinnimin) wasn’t even drafted.

    Actually I thought it was a bad move by the Rangers as Leipsic is someone who I compare to Ryan Callahan as Callahan was exactly like Leipsic is today.

    You never have enough Callahan like players in your lineup.

    Dave,

    The WHL is closer to the NHL than either of the other 2 CHL leagues. It is the QMJHL that is the league that has the inflated high scoring not the WHL.

    I was wanting the Rangers to use that pick on Leipsic as he has come a very long way in a short time.
