One player to watch on this Boston College team is freshman Chris Kreider (NYR). After a slow start to his first collegiate season, Kreider really picked things up in the second half. Since returning to the Eagles lineup after the World Junior Championships, he has posted 10 points (nine goals, one assist). Kreider, a Hockey East All-Rookie Team selection, comes into the tournament having posted 24 points (14 goals, seven assists) in 34 games.
Two Wolverines to keep an eye are junior Carl Hagelin (NYR) and freshman Chris Brown (PHO). Hagelin, a CCHA All-Tournament Team selection, has been the most consistent player for Michigan this season and is enjoying his best year in the Maize and Blue. He leads Michigan with 47 points (17 goals, 30 assists) playing in all 43 games. His 47 points also rank tied for 13th in the nation as well.
Wisconsin University's Derek Stepan and Ryan McDonagh will also be representing the Rangers at the NCAAs.
...looks like the Rangers prospects are better than most of the current players.
