Rangers lose at Traverse City


From the Rangers:

2010 Traverse City Prospects Tournament
New York Rangers fall to Minnesota Wild, 5-4 

September 14, 2010 – The New York Rangers prospects were defeated by the Minnesota Wild prospects, 5-4, in their third and final round-robin game of the 2010 Traverse City Prospects Tournament today in Traverse City, Michigan.

Center  Kelsey Tessier led the Rangers offense with a goal and an assist, while Alternate Captain Evgeny Grachev, Ethan Werek and Andrew Yogan each contributed goals, as well.  Captain Ryan McDonagh, Brandon Manning and Sam Klassen all added assists and Dylan McIlrath recorded a plus-three rating on the afternoon.  Goaltender Cam Talbot turned aside 22 shots in the contest.

“Stepan and Grachev continued to play well and provide offense, and McDonagh and McIlrath continued to be the solid two on defense, so we’ll keep them together (tomorrow),” said Gordie Clark. “One kid who really stepped up in this game is a player we just signed for the AHL, Kelsey Tessier. He came up with a big goal and a big assist.”

The New York Rangers prospects next take the ice tomorrow, Wednesday, September 15 in the fifth-sixth place game at 2:30pm ET, against the loser of tonight’s Detroit v St. Louis game.

  1. I was following this game via the Rangers’ website and its a real shame it wasn’t televised at least on the NHL network…or possibly just Webcast. It seemed pretty exciting…

    Is there a reason Traverse City isn’t televised at all? Is there a rule about airing them or something?

  2. Paul Mara to Anaheim. What a shame. That guy should have been our captain and getting rid of him was a mistake.
