Ranking the Rangers' best undrafted collegiate signings - New York Post

The Rangers bulked up their rather thin complement of forwards in Hartford for 2020-21 — or at least they think they did — by signing three undrafted collegians who might even have a higher ceiling than the AHL.

Patrick Khodorenko, a 21-year-old center who led Michigan State in scoring with a 16-33-49 senior season, is in. So is Austin Rueschhoff, the 22-year-old, 6-foot-7, 228-pound winger who recorded 26 points (12-14) as a junior for Western Michigan. Last but not least in projections is Justin Richards, the 5-10 righty center who went 14-11-25 as a junior for Minnesota Duluth.

As a hit-or-miss proposition, the whiffs come as often as Aaron Judge’s but without the home run ratio. As a risk-reward proposition, the downside is limited to problems that might arise from having non-prospects clogging the 50-contract organizational maximum. The Rangers, though, think these three are prospects.

If so, anyone would be the exception. Of course, Khodorenko, Rueschhoff and Richards are three distinct cases whose chances of making it have absolutely nothing to do with the fates of those signed before them, but here is a review of the Rangers’ previous 24 signings of undrafted college players in the universal draft era that commenced in 1970:

Ten of the 24 did not make it/have not made it to the NHL. They are: Chris Nell, G, Bowling Green (signed in 2017); Mat Bodie, D, Union (2014); Lee Baldwin, D, Alaska-Anchorage (2010); Paul Crowder, C, Alaska Anchorage (2009); Chris McCarthy, RW, Vermont (2014); Vince Pedrie, D, Penn State (2017); Tommy Grant, LW, Alaska Anchorage (2011); Adam Chapie, F, UMass-Lowell (2016); Ryan Haggerty, RW, RPI (2014), who was traded to Chicago straight up for Antti Raanta; and, Patrick Newell, F, St. Cloud State (2018), who has finished his second season with the Wolf Pack with 13 points (6-7) in 57 games.

Ken Duggan, a defenseman out of the University of Toronto whom the Blueshirts signed in May of 1986, played one game in the NHL, for the North Stars in 1987-88.

A work in progress, was leading Wolf Pack with 47 points (25-22) when the AHL season was suspended. Scored goal in first game as Ranger on Dec. 29, 2017 in Detroit but has produced only two goals with six assists in 46 games over a handful of NHL looks.

9. Thomas Pock, D, UMass-Amherst (2004)
Not only inserted into the lineup on the night he signed his contract on March 23, 2004, but scored on a 55-footer in his debut against the Penguins. Played 59 games with Blueshirts, recording 14 points (7-7) through 2007-08 before spending one year with Islanders.

8. Steve Richmond, D, Michigan (1982)

7. Tim Bothwell, D, Brown (1978)
The Ivy Leaguer posted 14 points (4-10) in 62 games with the Rangers through 1981-82 but could never quite earn a regular spot. Had a reliable 501-game NHL career predominantly spent with the Blues.

6. Matt Gilroy, D, Boston University (2009)
Blueshirts won a spirited competition to sign the Long Island native who never quite lived up to the hype. No. 97 played 142 games with the Rangers over two stints, recording seven goals and 19 assists.

5. Jed Ortmeyer, RW, Michigan (2003)
The right wing on the critical HMO fourth line of 2005-06 that had Ryan Hollweg on the left and Dominic Moore in the middle. Recorded 24 points (9-15) in 177 games for the Blueshirts and is currently the team’s director of player development.

4. George McPhee, RW, Bowling Green (1982)
Feisty, undersized, blue-collar guy who fit well into the New York scene, registering 21 goals and 24 assists in 109 games for the Rangers with 247 penalty minutes.

3. Neal Pionk, D, Minnesota Duluth (2017)
Played 101 games over two seasons with the Rangers during which he was primarily utilized as the club’s first-pair right D and power play first unit point man. Recorded 40 points (7-33) for Blueshirts before his trade to Winnipeg last June in the deal that brought Jacob Trouba to New York.
