The 2019 NHL Draft is over, and the Rangers made eight selections:
- 1st round (#2) – Kaapo Kakko (RW)
- 2nd round (#49) – Matthew Robertson (D)
- 2nd round (#58) – Karl Henriksson (C)
- 3rd round (#68) – Zac Jones (D)
- 4th round (#112) – Hunter Skinner (D)
- 5th round (#130) – Leevi Aaltonen (LW)
- 6th round (#161) – Adam Edstrom (LW)
- 7th round (#205) – Eric Ciccolini (C)
Robertson in the second round was by far the “safest pick” of the bunch, but that doesn’t mean it was a bad pick. Based on value, picks versus rankings, the Rangers had a solid draft.
We will have more in-depth analysis of the draft results in the coming days.
