The Rangers have taken 20 year old center Dominik Lakatos with their 157th overall pick. Lakatos plays in the Czech league, so the Rangers went with another Euro player. The 6′, 178 lb center put up 10-12-22 in the Czech league this year, earning rookie of the year honors.
I don’t know much about him, but I am a bit concerned by his age. I’m not a big fan of drafting 20 year olds when the draft age is usually 18 years old. But I trust Gordie Clark. That makes four Euros so far.
For what it’s worth, a lot of scouts/prospect guys like this pick."Rangers select Dominik Lakatos at pick #157",
