The Rangers organization released the folllowing statement:

"New York Rangers President and General Manager Chris Drury announced today that the team has agreed to terms with forward Dylan Roobroeck on a three-year, entry-level contract.

Roobroeck, 19, collected 26 goals and 46 assists for 72 points in 68 regular season games in 2023-24 for the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL). On the Generals, he ranked second in points and third in assists. During the OHL playoffs, Roobroeck had a team-high 11 goals, along with 15 assists for 26 points in 21 games.

The London, Ontario native has played three seasons in the OHL, split between the Generals and Niagara IceDogs, accumulating 146 points (46G-97A) in 200 regular season games. Last season, the 6-7, 204 pound forward tied for the Oshawa team lead with 38 assists.

Roobroeck was originally drafted by the Rangers in the sixth round, 178th overall, of the 2023 NHL Draft."

Roobroeck won't be able to help the Rangers in the playoffs this year, but could turn pro as soon as next season.

With Matt Rempe standing at 6'8", the Rangers suddenly have to giants that can use their sizes at their advantage. Rempe, as you know, is physical, while Roobroeck has offensive talent.
