Cristoval Nieves, Center
Cristoval Nieves is one level below the NHL. In the eight games he played in Hartford last season, he scored five points. Three were assists and two were goals.
The Rangers drafted him in the second round back in 2012 and gave him time to develop in college.
At the University of Michigan, Nieves had put decent numbers on the board up, always finishing with at least 20 points.
He finished his NCAA career with 109 points, consisting of 28 goals and 81 assists.
Blueshirt fans may want to keep an eye on this forward as well. Nieves is another who could potentially become a huge part of the franchise.
He simply needs some time to grow.
