3 Stars Of The Week: North American Prospects Edition, Nov 7, 2017
When drafting prospects, teams will scout players and select those who may be able to make an impact on their team down the line. Sometimes, they scout and analyze but throw a pick at a wall and see if it sticks. The Rangers have a plethora of prospects that are brewing in the system, thrown at a wall attempting to stick somewhere. Here are the three stars of the week from the Rangers’ North American prospect pool!
3rd Star: Tyler Nanne, D/C, Minnesota Golden Gophers (NCAA)
The Rangers’ fifth-round pick (142nd overall) in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft tallied his first collegiate goal and a plus/minus of +2 on November 4th versus Michigan State.
Nanne is currently posting a plus/minus of +4, which is tied for fourth on the team. So far, he’s recorded two points in ten games for the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
