New York Rangers: Traverse City Players To Watch

Robin Kovacs, Left Wing

Now, the final three.

Robin Kovacs has been on the Rangers’ watch for quite some time now and gave the organization the belief that he is ready to come over from Europe.

The 19-year-old winger, straight out of Stockholm, Sweden, is a speedy skater that has a chance to become a very good NHL’er, given the time.

The Blueshirts selected Kovacs in the third round of the 2015 NHL draft and were happy to see the numbers he put up in Europe. With Allsvenskan, he put up some impressive stats across his time with the J18, J20, and AIK teams.

For starters, in 2012-13, Kovacs had 14 goals and 16 assists in the J18 Allsvenskan league. The following season, in the same league, those numbers dropped.

However, in his second year with the AIK J20 team, he scored 15 goals and 13 assists in the Super Elite league.

2015-16 proved to be his best season yet, finishing with 34 points with AIK (21 goals and 13 assists), one assist with Rögle BK, and six points with the Sweden U20 team.

The Rangers are hoping for big things from Kovacs and want to see them soon. As mentioned before, he has been on the watch of the club for some time now. Now, it’s time for business.

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.
