New York Rangers: Traverse City Players To Watch

Brandon Halverson, Goaltender

Brandon Halverson is a name that not too many Rangers fans forget, and for good reason.

Halverson may be one of the few goalies that can potentially be the future of the club.

Halverson was selected by the Rangers in the second round of the 2014 NHL draft.

This season will be his first in New York as he will spend his time with the American Hockey League (AHL) in Hartford.

The Rangers and Blueshirt fans alike will be keeping very close tabs to this 6’4″ goaltender who happens to be from the same city where the tournament is being held — Traverse City.

His OHL team was Sault Ste. Marie of the OHL, and also shares some playing experience with teammate Tim Gettinger.

His Goals Against Average stat is a little high after last season, ending with a 3.00 GAA, increasing from a 2.96 and a 2.63 GAA from the two previous seasons — 2013-14 and 2014-15, respectively.

Any little bit will help him. At this point, the Rangers need someone down in the minors that can replace Henrik Lundqvist.

It is definitely a long time away. However, these thoughts have to come up now to avoid another dark era.

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.
