NYR No. 134: McColgan – Small, slippery forward. Needs to improve strength.—

They took Samuel Noreau (D, Baie-Comeau QMJHL) with the 136th pick.
He is 6-4, 210 and had 5 goals and 5 assists in 67 games last season.
Noureau is another defenseman in the Dylan McIlrath mold. A shutdown guy who is tough and fights. McColgan has some interesting skill and a nice story being from California. The Rangers have had some nice success with mid-round guys, he could be another.
