News: Rangers Select Thomas Spelling

The Rangers have acquired the 142nd pick in the draft from Nashville for a fifth rounder next year and select forward Thomas Spelling.

Spelling, from Denmark, is 6-1, 176lbs.

He is the 90th ranked European skater according to Central Scouting. He isn’t ranked by Future Considerations.

Adam Rotter: This is one of those picks that really intrigues me because he is obviously a guy the Rangers were high on and willing to trade back into the draft for him. Maybe he is the next Jesper Fast?
