2011 NHL Draft: Rangers Select Shane McColgan and Samuel Noreau in 5th Round
The Rangers held two draft picks in the round five. The first, at 134th overall, was used to select right wing Shane McColgan of the Western Hockey League. McColgan is on the smaller side at 5-foot-8, 165 pounds, but is talked highly of by scouts for being a slippery, smooth skater. McColgan had 21 goals and 45 assists in 67 games with Kelowna last season.
