February 17th, 2019 The New York Rangers are not out of the playoff hunt yet, but the outlook is not bright. They have not been bad enough to receive a prized pick in this offseason's draft, but still not good enough to compete in the postseason. This is a primary result of the team’s efforts to...

Rangers Prospects

February is crunch time in the world of hockey, with the playoffs looming and teams trying to shake that end-of-the-season fatigue. Luckily for UMass Lowell and their hot start to 2019, goaltender Tyler Wall has shown no signs of weariness. Wall turned aside all 28 shots he faced against Boston College on Feb. 8 for his fourth shutout of the season. It was the second time the New York Rangers' 2016 sixth-round pick (174th overall) faced the Eagles in a two-week span, after he only let in one tally in the 3-1 victory on Jan. 25. Wall earned the Hockey East Defensive Player of the Week honor on Feb. 3 after the junior posted wins in each of his last four appearances between the pipes. During that stretch, he posted a 0.50 goals-against average along with a .981 save percentage (103 saves on 105 shots). He now ties for third in the NCAA in save percentage and fourth in goals-against average. But Wall rounded out the stars from two weeks ago, and it was another successful week for...

Rangers History

"The wait is over. The New York Rangers are Stanley Cup champions and this one will last a lifetime." Never has a phrase spoken by a broadcaster been more poetic. Those words were uttered by Rangers announcer Sam Rosen on June 14 after the team won Game 7 to capture the 1994 Stanley Cup. It best describes the emotions inside Madison Square Garden and by long-suffering Ranger fans who had witnessed a lifetime of disappointment with each playoff exit. It's hard to imagine that 25 years have passed since that memorable season. Your immediate thoughts while watching the on-ice ceremony for the '94 Stanley Cup champions was remembering the struggles that came in their uphill climb to reach the pinnacle atop the NHL. The Rangers survived back-to-back grueling playoff series against the New Jersey Devils in the Eastern Conference Final and the Vancouver Canucks in the Stanley Cup Final. At times, it was hard to imagine them beating the odds and hoisting the Cup in the air. But...

New York Rangers

Anthony DeAngelo has already had an eventful hockey career by the age of 23. He was drafted five years ago by the Tampa Bay Lightning and he’s already playing for his third organization, the New York Rangers. After a sub-par 2017-18 season, when he split time between the Hartford Wolf Pack and Rangers, management hoped that the 5-foot-11 defenseman would start to hit his stride in his first season in the same jersey as his last. DeAngelo came to New York in an offseason trade that sent star center Derek Stepan and backup goaltender Antti Raanta to the Arizona Coyotes. The Rangers, in addition to DeAngelo, received the seventh-overall pick in the 2017 NHL Draft. Given that he was traded for fan-favorite Stepan, expectations were soaring. He played 32 games for the Rangers last season, seven fewer appearances than he made for the Coyotes in 2016-17, accumulating just eight assists and finishing with a minus-18 rating. For the Wolf Pack, he really didn’t do much better,...

Missing Ryan Callahan

When Ryan Callahan departed from the New York Rangers in 2014, he took certain skills with him that the Rangers desperately need back. Don’t get me wrong, trading him at the time and not signing him to a massive contract that overpaid him was the right move but looking back on this past season,... May 19th, 2017
