Rangers rookie proving to be among the team’s…

Heading into the season, the New York Rangers were looking for a young, cost-controlled forward for their bottom six.

After coming off a 45-point (25 goals and 20 assists), along with an All-Star Game appearance for the Hartford Wolf Pack, the Rangers coaching staff had to look no further than Will Cuylle.His stellar performance during the pre-season earned him the last spot on the roster. Through his first 53 games, Cuylle has shown how important his physicality and depth scoring is to the team.

Standing in at 6-foot-3 and weighing 210 pounds, Cuylle isn’t shy to throw his body around on the ice. Instead, he welcomes the opportunity.

The 22-year-old’s 169 hits on the season rank fifth league-wide and first amongst his fellow rookies.
