After signing Kevin Hayes and Jimmy Vesey in recent seasons, the New York Rangers have their sights set on Alex Kerfoot, another amateur standout. 

It looks like the New York Rangers have their eyes on another young talent.

Alex Kerfoot — a standout for Harvard over the last four seasons — will make a decision of what team he would like to sign with no later than Tuesday, according to agent J.B. Barry. It is believed there are two or three teams he is contemplating, one of which are the Rangers. Larry Brooks of the New York Post tweeted this earlier today.

Kerfoot, a Hobey Baker Award finalist, was originally selected by the New Jersey Devils in the fifth round of the 2012 NHL entry draft at 150th overall. Instead of heading to the NHL, he decided to go the same route as one-time teammate Jimmy Vesey and become a free agent after four years in college. Vesey was in the same situation last season and eventually decided to sign with the Rangers.

The 175-pound pound center has great speed and skill and would have a chance to make the squad since the Rangers are in desperate need of a center. Kerfoot potted 16 goals and added 29 helpers in 36 games last season for a Harvard team that won an Ivy League Men’s Championship.
