With their final pick in the 2016 NHL Draft, the Rangers took Ty Ronning, son of Cliff Ronning. Ronning isn’t that big, but he’s tremendously skilled. His size was questioned, but 5’9″ isn’t that small, and kids can put on muscle weight. This late, you pick skill and hope for the best. The Rangers did just that.
Ronning has mid-round skill, but fell all the way to the seventh round due to size and the fact that this was the first year where he “turned it on” and put up big numbers.
And then the Rangers get Ty Ronning. Another great pick.

Seems like a very good late pick by #NYR. Ty Ronning has a great deal of upside. 59 points in 67 games last season for Vancouver of the WHL.

I like this pick a lot. The Rangers did well this draft.
