The Ranger’s future will be fun to watch for sure, so here’s let’s discuss what’s in store.
The New York Rangers are currently the youngest NHL Team in the league with an averaging 26.2 years of age. There are many bright futures for the youngsters such as Filip Chytil, Kaapo Kakko, Adam Fox, Igor Shesterkin, Alexander Georgiev, Tony DeAngelo and definitely many others.
The Rangers offense is awesome to watch, especially with these young players. Filip Chytil is someone who is only getting better and has had a solid season so far, and is developing great.
Another great offensive threat is Kaapo Kakko. Obviously not putting up the big numbers with the team (yet), but I think he has a bright future with the Blueshirts. The 19-year-old forward has 23 points this year and was drafted just behind #1 overall pick from the New Jersey Devils, Jack Hughes.
The Rangers are a powerful offense with many weapons such as Mika Zibanejed, Artemi Panarin and Chris Kreider.
The Rangers defense is a solid young core and has had awesome development. A name that easily stands out is Adam Fox. Fox is a very talented defenseman that brings a lot of offense to this young core. He has an amazing hockey IQ and can become a lethal defenseman in his upcoming NHL years. Fox is a strong pair with his buddy Ryan Lindgren. They have been very dominant and David Quinn does not mind putting them against the top offenses in the league such as the Colorado Avalanche, Toronto Maple Leafs, and many other amazing scoring groups. They are very fun to watch.
Additionally, the Rangers have a very good prospect pool and some young developing players are defenseman. K’andre Miller, college defenseman out of Wisconsin, is having a solid year with the Badgers and he just signed an entry level contract with the Blueshirts who will most likely playing with the Hartford Wolfpack.
Another name that comes to mind is Nils Lundkvist who is a Swedish defenseman. Very good skating ability, and will be a strong fit for the Blueshirts.
The Rangers goaltending has been quite solid this year with the three net minders Henrik Lundqvist, Alexander Georgiev, and Igor Shesterkin. Igor Shesterkin has been great this season and has been really deserving of the starting role. He has posted a great win/lose record with at 10-2 and an astonishing .932 save percentage.
Alexander Georgiev has been a solid backup for the Rangers as well. Henrik Lundqvist, the 38-year-old, is still chasing what he deserves. The Stanley Cup.
