The 2024 NCAA Men's Ice Hockey National Championship takes place on April 13th at the Xcel Energy Center in Saint Paul Minnesota. After that, NHL teams can sign college players as free agents in time for the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The New York Rangers should consider signing, drafting, or trading for the rights of several Quinnipiac Bobcats skaters who are set to become hot commodities on the market before the 2024 Stanley Cup Playoffs on April 22nd and the draft on June 28th.

Players who have signed out of college and made an impact immediately at the NHL level include Adam Oates, Marty St. Louis, Eddie Belfour, Joe Mullen, Dan Boyle, Torey Krug, Curtis Joseph, Chris Kunitz, Dave Poulin, and Tyler Bozak.

The New York Rangers club is no stranger to trading and signing Eastern College Athletic Conference talent, including two current assets Adam Fox and Jimmy Vesey.

The organization has also seen the impact a drafted player can have going straight from an NCAA championship game to NHL ice in Chris Kreider, who is currently third in goals all-time for the Blueshsirts.

Here is a look at the Bobcats the Rangers should keep on their radar.
