Part of the excitement of a new season is the prospects showing their talent. Here are the top five prospects for the New York Rangers.

The best cure for offseason blues is looking at the new hope of the next season. So, of course, prospects are the best way to get into a new season mindset. For the New York Rangers, they have quite a few that could make the team.

Most of these prospects have been in the organization since last season or earlier. One of these prospects was acquired at this year’s NHL trade deadline.

They has a good mix to get excited about, specifically of forwards and goaltenders. In reality, they’ve had a good number of forward prospects over the past few seasons and they will continue to add some more.

In terms of defensemen, that appears to be the area they are the thinnest in. Only one of the prospects named in this list will be a defenseman.

Keep in mind that this list will most likely change by the start of next season. The Rangers have seven picks in the first three rounds of the draft, including three first rounders. They will also be active on the trade market, looking to swap some veterans out of their lineup for more picks and prospects. This list is just based on what they currently have in their system.

So without further ado, here is our list of  the New York Rangers’ top five prospects with the team as of now.
