Rangers sign OHL defenseman Troy DonnayJuly 31, 2013, by
Per Capgeek (s/t to Kevin Power of Blueshirt Banter for the tip), the Rangers have signed OHL defenseman Troy Donnay to a three year entry level deal. Donnay, an undrafted free agent, participated in Rangers prospect camp this year following his third year in the OHL. The 19-year-old Donnay played for the Erie Otters, registering a goal and seven assists over the full season while serving as the alternate captain. His -39 is scary, but Erie was just awful this year.
The 6’7, 185 lb defenseman is not known for his offensive skills, but has decent skating ability for someone of his size. He doesn’t have a big mean streak yet, but that doesn’t mean he’s not a physical player. With most teenagers, he needs to bulk up before he can become an effective player. He will likely return to the OHL for at least one more season.
