The New York Rangers have agreed to an entry level contract with Cristoval "Boo" Nieves today.

I'm working on clarification for the two year part of this entry level contract, but it's good to see the Rangers locking him down after his season was ended in the NCAA tournament. Nieves is a guy who has a ton of potential who really put things together in his final season at Michigan University. His stats (thanks to Elite Prospects) are embedded below.

Per McKenzie, Nieves will play the rest of the year in Hartford on an ATO so he doesn't burn a year off his entry level contract.

Thoughts on this guys? I'm curious to see what he looks like at the next level, personally.

UPDATE: Here's the two-year clarification
