3 NY Rangers prospects advanced to the 2nd round of the WHL playoffs

With their 6th round pick (#165) in the 2020 NHL Draft, the NY Rangers selected center Matt Rempe.

Rempe is the third player from the WHL to be selected in this draft. Rempe is a whopping 6’8″ and 236 lbs as an 18 year old. I never call out size, but he is just really, really tall.

He is big, he is strong, and that’s about it. There’s some skill and obviously some decent skating, but this is a major project pick. At this point, everything is a dart throw. Matt Rempe could be Brian Boyle for the Rangers, or he could be another 6th rounder gone by the wayside.
