The 20-year-old forward plays for the Vancouver Giants of the WHL, and is tied for second in the league with 55 goals scored. Ronning, the son of former Vancouver Canucks forward Cliff Ronning, is a small player at just 5’9″, but makes up for his lack of size with great hands, hockey sense and skating ability. Before being sent back to the Giants in the summer, Ronning was the captain of the Rangers team that participated in the Traverse City prospects tournament. Ronning also spent some time with the Wolf Pack last season, registering five points (2G, 3A) in just 12 games down in Hartford.
Thank you to my family, teammates, coaches, and friends for always pushing me to be a better player — and person. Thank you all for believing in me and supporting my career! Hard work pays off but this is just the beginning. Can’t wait to take a bite out of the big apple! ? pic.twitter.com/XPXfURq9sq
