While the thunder is rolling in the New York area, the Rangers are at Montreal looking for some talent and perhaps swinging some deals as the 2009 NHL Entry Draft weekend has begun.
The Rangers have the 19th overall pick as well as 47, 80, 127, 140, 151, 170 and 200.
Chances are, some of these picks will be packaged since they are in similar spots of the draft order.
The other day we chronicled a couple names of potential wingers that the Rangers could be looking at. Here is some more information on each of the rookie wings:
- Carter Ashton - 6' 2" and 205 lbs. Ranked 12 by Central Scouting. Scored more than 30 goals last season in the WHL.
- Kyle Palmieri - 5'10" and 191 lbs. Ranked 20 by Central Scouting. A consistent scorer the past two seasons in the USHL.
- Jordan Caron - 6'3" and 203 lbs. Ranked 21 by Central Scouting. Can score and play with an edge as he had 66 penalty minutes for Rimouski in the QMJHL.
- Zach Budish - 6'3" and 225 lbs. Ranked 22 by Central Scouting. A larger winger that has scoring potential despite a down season last year.
But there are tons of options out there and the draft is always a crap shoot, but we will have it all here at Blueshirt Bulletin. Stay tuned on our Twitter: NYRBlueBulletin for instant updates.
