Recap of Rangers Draft Selections

The Rangers selected five forwards, one defenseman and one goaltender in the 2015 NHL Draft and these are those eight young men, who hope to become part of the Broadway Blueshirts. Only time, luck, hard work and determination will make that happen. To Ryan Gropp, Robin Kovacs, Sergey Zborovskiy, Alexsi Saarela, Brad Morrison, Daniel Bernhardt and Adam Huska, I say welcome to the NY Rangers organization and good luck guys.
