The Rangers have selected defenseman Sean Day with their third round pick, #81 overall. Day is a big kid at 6’2″, 224 lbs at just 18 years old. But don’t let his size fool you, Day is one of the best skaters in the draft and is a potential home run pick for the Rangers. Day’s a very good puck mover, and as mentioned a great skater with huge potential.

There seem to be some concerns about his compete level, but this is a great risk taken by the Rangers. They went for talent and skating on the blue line, something they needed desperately. Day was given “exceptional skater” status in the OHL and allowed to enter the league at just 15 years old. Day instantly becomes one of the top prospects in the Rangers’ system.

Some more feedback on Day:

Looks like a lot of folks like Day.

    The Rangers already gave him a 7 year contract for 38 million. Big gamble there

      I’m a little concerned that he might have trouble skating at night. He’s always been a up who plays best in the “Day”
