hugo ollas

The Rangers have signed goalie Hugo Ollas to an entry level contract. Ollas, the Rangers 7th round pick in 2020, started his pro career in Sweden, never really cracking the SHL as a regular, before transferring to Merrimack College in the NCAA’s Hockey East. Ollas has put up pretty solid numbers in his three seasons, effectively keeping Merrimack somewhat respectable while in net.

Ollas is a big kid at 6-foot-7, and moves very well for his size. It’s expected he will be in competition for a spot in the AHL next season, competing with Dylan Garand and Louis Domingue, but it’s likely he starts the year in the ECHL. Ollas will need some work, but Benoit Allaire is a wizard after all.
