2016 NHL Draft: Rangers select Tarmo Reunanen with fourth round pick

The Rangers have selected defenseman Tarmo Reunanen with their fourth round pick, #98 overall. The pick was acquired in the Keith Yandle deal, and Reunanen is a solid skating, puck moving defenseman. A bit of an overdraft –most had him going in the 145 range– though, but the Rangers picked skill over size on this one.

That’s not saying Reunanen is small (6′, 178 lbs), but he’s not Day’s size. Regardless, Reunanen is another smooth skater who excels at transitioning and getting the puck up the ice. Injuries seemed to be an issue, which caused his stock to slip.

More opinions on him below.

There’s not much on him because of the injuries, but seems like the Rangers have a particular player they are targeting this year.
