2020 NHL Draft: New York Rangers Select Brett Berard 134th Overall

The New York Rangers have selected Brett Berard with the 134th pick of the 2020 NHL Draft.

Berard was ranked:

  • No. 40 by McKeen’s Hockey
  • No. 45 by NHL Central Scouting (NA Skaters)
  • No. 49 by Dobber Prospects
  • No. 59 by Elite Prospects
  • No. 68 by Bob McKenzie
  • No. 93 by Future Considerations
  • No. 97 by Craig Button/

Via Elite Prospects

Berard packs high-octane offensive talent into a 5-foot-9 package. He sees an opportunity to shoot, pass, or support, and he immediately acts. He’s a dual-threat attacker with a bit of skill beyond the offence. He layers deception through false signals sent to the opposition with his eyes and through his body language. He works the puck through the defensive triangle.

Here are some additional thoughts on the Rangers’ newest prospect.

This pick certainly appears to be a bit of a steal for the Rangers, which is certainly good for the prospect pool.

Stay tuned for more in-depth information on this pick in the days to come.
