Hey there, New York Rangers fans!

Shining Bright: Rangers Prospects Making Splashes on Campus:
On Friday, 2023, first-round draft pick Gabriel Perreault scored his first NCAA goal for the Boston College Eagles. The freshman’s goal came in the second period against RPI, and he followed it up with an assist in the third period. The Eagles won 6-2.
Jaroslav Chmelar continued his point streak at Providence College in a top-ten matchup against the Denver Pioneers. The sophomore forward evened the score at two in the second period and picked up an assist during the third period on the power play for what would turn out to be the winning goal for Providence. They won 4-3.
Out west, Noah Laba centered the top line for the Colorado College Tigers as they skated to a 4-2 victory over the Long Island University Sharks. Laba set up the game-winning goal, and he finished the game with one assist.
Brody Lamb was at center in the starting lineup for the top-ranked Minnesota Golden Gophers. He scored a breakaway goal two minutes into the second period and added a primary assist. The Golden Gophers beat North Dakota 4-2.
Now, let’s talk about the Celebrini brothers. Aiden Celebrini registered a goal and an assist. Freshman Shane Lachance scored the first two goals of his collegiate career for Boston University in their 8-2 win over Notre Dame on Sunday. His classmate and projected 2024 NHL draft pick, Macklin Celebrini, also lit the lamp twice. The Terriers victory avenged Friday’s 4-1 defeat at the hands of the Irish.
In the USHL this weekend, Ty Hendricks, New York’s 6th-round pick in 2023 (183rd overall), showcased his skills in two games for the Muskegon Lumberjacks. He made his presence known by contributing a goal and an assist. The Lumberjacks swept their opponents from the USNTDP 17s with scores of 5-2 and 6-3, and Ty played a part in these impressive victories. He now has three goals and five points in eight games thus far.
