The Athletic is doing their annual NHL prospect system ranking (link: subs. req’d), and the NY Rangers will be in the top-two. The Rangers have been stockpiling prospects for some time now. They’ve seen seen their system rise in the rankings through the rebuild.

It’s worth noting that these rankings do not include the 2020 NHL Draft, meaning it does not include Alexis Lafreniere. It’s also worth noting that the ranking includes any player under 22, so the list will include Filip Chytil, Adam Fox, Ryan Lindgren, and Kaapo Kakko are still included in the ranking.

Funny enough, it’s between the Rangers and the Devils for the top organizational ranking. It should be a fun rivalry for years to come. It is nice seeing the NY Rangers atop the prospect rankings though.
