Brandon Halverson Signs Entry-level Contract with New York Rangers

New Rangers’ General Manager Jeff Gorton was pleased to sign young Brandon Halverson to his entry level contract on Thursday.

The 19 year-old Traverse City, Michigan native was originally selected by the Broadway Blueshirts in the second round of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

Halverson was actually the 59th overall selection that year.

The 6 foot 4, 195 pound goalie became the first NY Rangers’ prospect to ever win at least 40 games in a regular season at the Junior Level.

Halverson did this as a member of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, as he went 40-5-2 during the regular season. In the OHL (Ontario Hockey League) playoffs, he was impressive as well as he posted a 10-4 record, as the team made it to the third round of the playoffs before losing to the Erie Otters.

In 69 career OHL appearances, Brandon has posted a record of 52-11-3 with a GAA of 2.72, a SV% of .910 and 8 SO. He also played in the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship as a member of Team USA and won the only game he appeared in with a shutout over Germany on December 28th, 2014.

Halverson has been invited to Team USA’s Juniors training camp and is trying to win a spot on the team, hopefully this time as the starting goaltender. When that is finished, look for the goalie to be at Hartford with the Wolf Pack vying for the starting position against Magnus Hellberg and the soon to be healthy again Makenzie Skapski.

Congrats to Brandon Halverson upon the signing of his entry level contract.
