Rangers Sign Ty Ronning To ELC

NHL.com

Moments ago, the Rangers announced that they have signed prospect Ty Ronning to an entry-level contract.

The 20-year-old forward plays for the Vancouver Giants of the WHL, and is tied for second in the league with 55 goals scored. Ronning, the son of former Vancouver Canucks forward Cliff Ronning, is a small player at just 5’9″, but makes up for his lack of size with great hands, hockey sense and skating ability. Before being sent back to the Giants in the summer, Ronning was the captain of the Rangers team that participated in the Traverse City prospects tournament. Ronning also spent some time with the Wolf Pack last season, registering five points (2G, 3A) in just 12 games down in Hartford.

  • Hope he turns out to be another Zucc or MSL. Being small may be a problem, but it’s a manageable problem!

    • The scary part is he has actually taller than his father. Well at least it’s listed that way. I will bet you he’s nowhere near 5’9 in person. The guy who measures him must be the same guy who measures the football players in high school. Christ I was listed as 6’4 215 when I was actually 6’2 165 soaking wet. Ty looks much smaller than his dad but seems to have his father’s hands and craftiness.

  • Love this kid and how he always gives 110%.

  • William R Christian

    Needed sniper.

  • If Ronning turns out to be half the player he father was the Rangers have a nice offensively gifted player in their future. However I can already see people having way to much expectations because of his numbers in Juniors.
