Hearing St. Cloud F Patrick Newell (a Hobey Baker Finalist) is going to sign with NYR

Newell, a Hober Baker finalist, had a superb senior year at St. Cloud, putting up 21-26-47 to lead the team in scoring. It was a huge jump in scoring for the senior, whose NCAA highs before were 7 goals (freshman year), 21 assists (junior year), and 27 points (junior year).
Newell is listed at 5’10” and 150 lbs, but I highly doubt that weight is accurate. A college senior at 150 pounds? Either way, a player can always add muscle. That’s not too hard.
I couldn’t find much on his scouting report. But free assets are free assets.
