New York Rangers: Traverse City Players To Watch

Tim Gettinger, Left Wing

The first three players to watch in this upcoming tournament all have something in common: all of them were drafted in the 2016 NHL draft.

Tim Gettinger is a 6’5″, 201 lb left winger who was selected by the Rangers 141st overall.

Last season with Sault Ste. Maire of the OHL, Gettinger had 17 goals and 22 assists (39 points) in 60 games. The year prior, dressing for six fewer games, he finished with 10 goals and 15 assists.

Starting in the 2011-12 season, Gettinger played for the Cleveland Barons Bantam Major, the Cleveland Barons U16 Team, and the US National U17 Team.

In only his second season with Cleveland, Gettinger finished the season (2012-13) with 44 points, 25 of which were goals.

On Cleveland’s U16 team, 24 goals and 8 assists finished him off with 32 points.

The 18-year-old will have a chance to show the Blueshirts what they drafted him for. Traverse City may be a good test to see how he reacts to other near NHL-ready players.

I love watching sports, specifically teams in New York. I'll root for all New York teams, but the New York Rangers and hockey are my number one. I am an avid hockey fan and enjoy expressing my opinion on the Blueshirts, when they are playing good and bad.
