4:38PM: Chris Kreider was ranked 19th on the list.
On Kreider, they write, “Kreider is a complete package of size, quickness, smarts, scoring and passing ability that is coupled with a respectable defensive game. His offensive skills may not be elite, but he will contribute in different ways on the ice.”
Tortorella: “Kreider? No chance he’s intimidated from what I’ve seen of him.. I have no hesitation of putting him in all situations tonite.”

3:33PM: 4/25/12 Hockey’s Future is counting down the top 50 prospects in hockey and the Rangers have two prospects in the first batch that have been revealed.
On Erixon, they write, ” A jack-of-all-trades but master of none, Erixon possesses great hockey sense and plays a sound two-way game. He has the potential to be an elite, second-pairing defenseman in the not too distant future.”
On Hagelin, “While he’s likely never going to be a star, he has the makings of becoming a great complementary piece that all winning teams need to be successful.
The Hockey News ranked Tim Erixon as the Rangers best prospect.
