NY Rangers Sign Another Mammoth Prospect in 6'7" Forward

The New York Rangers made a "big" splash this season when they brought Matt Rempe's 6'7", 240-pound frame into their lineup. His monstrous presence is felt for pretty much all of the five or so minutes he spends on the ice each game. 

Imagine adding yet another imposing 6'7" forward into the mix, but one with more skill. The Rangers have signed Dylan Roobroeck to a three-year, entry-level contract.

A 6th-round Rangers pick in the 2023 Draft, the 19-year-old spent the past two seasons with the Oshawa Generals of the OHL, and this year put up some impressive numbers, with 26 goals, 46 assists, and 72 points in his 68 games to go along with 101 penalty minutes. He also sported a plus/minus rating of +23. 

He added a team-high 11 goals and 15 assists for 26 points in 21 OHL playoff games.

The 204-pounder doesn't fill out his 6'7" frame quite the same way that Rempe does, but is nevertheless an imposing figure on the ice. He is said to be a good skater and puckhandler as well for his size. 

Roobroeck now joins the Hartford Wolf Pack immediately on an amateur tryout (ATO) for the rest of the AHL playoffs. 

He is eligible to be farmed out to the AHL for next season if the Rangers so desire, without having to send him back to junior.
