2020 NHL Draft: New York Rangers Select Evan Vierling 127th Overall

The New York Rangers have selected Evan Vierling with the 127th pick of the 2020 NHL Draft.

This pick was acquired from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for pick No. 196 and pick No. 206 in the 2020 NHL Draft.

Vierling was ranked:

  • No. 44 by Craig Button
  • No. 64 by McKeen’s Hockey
  • No. 72 by Future Considerations
  • No. 85 by Elite Prospects
  • No. 90 by Bob McKenzie

Via Elite Prospects

Vierling is a defensively reliable, high-motor, two-way player, and a credible dual-threat scorer in the offensive zone. He’s actually pretty enthusiastic about mucking it up in the most hotly contested parts of the offensive zone. He’s even willing to take the puck there himself if he has to. He’s also a credible shooting threat, even at intermediate range.

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

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