Prospects of the Week

Each Tuesday during the 2010-11 season, newyorkrangers.com will salute members of the Rangers organization who are playing outside the NHL in our new Prospects of the Week feature. Fans will be able to check in on the performance of some of the team's top prospects and get to know these players while they are still on the road to the NHL. This in-season choice of featured players, as well as information highlighted in our Prospect of Week listings, is at the discretion of the newyorkrangers.com editors.

Here is the current Prospects of the Week listing, for the week ending March 20, 2011:
