Kitchener Rangers General Manager
Murray Hiebert announced Wednesday that forward Ryan MacInnis has
committed to the team and has signed an Ontario Hockey League agreement.
MacInnis was the Rangers’ third round pick in the 2012 OHL Priority
52 games with the US National Team Development Under-17 program in
2012-13, recording 15 goals and 10 assists and helping his squad win
the 2012 Under-17 Four Nations Tournament. He also appeared in eight
games for the USNTDP U-18 team and won a bronze medal with Team USA at
the 2013 U-17 World Hockey Championship.
Rangers scouts labelled MacInnis as
one of the top forwards available in the 2012 draft, with his strong
skating and puck handling skills. With an elite-level shot and good
hockey sense, MacInnis is an offensively gifted player who will be
eligible for the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.
“I am really looking forward to the
opportunity to play in Kitchener. Joining the Rangers allows me to take
the next step in both my on-ice development and my education,” said
MacInnis on Wednesday.
“At this time, I feel this is the best
option for me both as a player and as an individual, and I am excited
for the season ahead.”
