The New York Rangers have signed goalie Tyler Wall, their 2016 6th round pick. Wall just finished his senior season at UMass-Lowell, where he put together some great numbers. His senior season, his best, saw him post an 18-8-6 record with a 2.10 GAA and a .931 SV%.
Wall will join Adam Huska in Hartford, where both will fight for the starting role with the Wolf Pack. Huska struggled with Hartford this past season, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if Wall has the inside track to start.
This signing has no impact on the NHL goalie conundrum, at all. Wall finished his senior season and the Rangers needed to sign him.
