The Rangers have signed their first 2016 draftee, coming to terms with third rounder Sean Day on a three-year entry-level contract. Day is a big kid at 6’2″, 224 lbs. 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.
Day slid at the draft because of compete level issues, something a lot of kids go through. But he’s rebounded in a big way this year. He set a career high in goals in the OHL this year, and has a line of 14-17-31 through 57 games. That’s a huge improvement on his draft year numbers of 6-16-22 in 57 games.
Day has huge potential, and could be an impact defenseman for the Rangers in the near future.
