Ty Ronning, Right Wing
Ronning ended up being the Blueshirts’ seventh-round pick in this year’s draft.
For starters, he is a small skater coming in at 5’9″. He also weighs only 165lbs, so he is not going to turn into a power forward.
What makes him special is his speed and skating ability.
Ronning currently has three seasons under his belt for the Vancouver Giants of the Western Hockey League (WHL), currently entering his fourth year.
He has 81 total points with Vancouver in the WHL over the course of three seasons.
The video (above) that the Vancouver Canucks put out about Ronning says it all, showing what he can do both with time and room, as well as in tight. It essentially shows that he is a special player, and is not afraid to get into the dirty areas.
That is something certainly in the Rangers’ playbook.
