Read: Dylan McIlrath Knows What He Needs To Work On/Organization has always preached patience

Dylan McIlrathIn two games with the Rangers earlier this season, Dylan McIlrath played 8:55 and 5:08 before being a healthy scratch and then sent to Hartford.

McIlrath told Ranger Rants that he understands being a scratch is part of the process and that looking at the game from the press box would provide a different vantage point and one that could help his game.

He added that he understands that his skating isn’t at the level of a John Moore or Ryan McDonagh and that having good positioning is going to have to be the key to his game.

He pointed to Dan Girardi is a player he could model his game after when it comes to positioning.


McIlrath said that the organization told him from day 1 that they were going to be patient with him and let him develop until he was ready to play full time. He said that the fans may get antsy with him in the minors but he feels comfortable knowing he has the support of the team. (Courant)

McIlrath said that the organization was pleased with how he was developing before he was called up. (Courant)
