As representatives for Newport Sports are in the NY area to meet with clients, and potentially Glen Sather about Mats Zuccarello and Ryan O’Reilly, Katie Strang notes that Newport is also acting as an adviser to top college free agent Danny Dekeyser.
Dekeyser is a junior defenseman at Western Michigan who is 6-3, 198lbs and from Michigan. He will turn 23 next week.
He has been watched by NHL teams for over a year and decided last year to stay in College when he was considered to be one of the top college free agents.
Bob McKenzie said last year that Dekeyser is a mobile, puck handling defenseman with a good shot from the point.
The Rangers signed Matt Gilroy as a college free agent and were in the running to sign Justin Schultz.
