Craig Button was on the Rangers Blue Line Podcast recently and said that the Rangers prospect he is most excited about is Pavel Buchnevich.
Button said, “the guy that I really like is Pavel Buchnevich. He has size, he can think, he can skate and he is a competitor. Every time I have watched Pavel the last four years, the bigger the game, the harder the situation, the better he has been. He fits really nicely and is a high end talent.
Buchnevich “absolutely has top-line forward potential,” has a great shot and is “very creative with the puck.” (Dobber Hockey Prospect Guide)
Gordie Clark said recently, “Whatever decision he makes we are 100% behind it. I think he would have been in the lineup this year. He made his decision and we are behind it and we will just keep going over and tagging up with him. He watches all the Rangers games that he can and it looks like a year from now he will get a crack at it.” (NYR)
