29 saves in a 1-0 loss.
Sixth-round pick goalie Mackenzie Skapski is poised to join the organization after four junior seasons with Kootenay (Western Hockey League).
Here's a one on on interview with MacKenzie and Cerny where he rips the Rangers for drafting other goalies.
Careful, Dave. He's ginger.
Came in for Desjardins who got injured tonight. Lost in the shootout, but still made 24 saves on 24 shots. Right now he's 6-5-2, .920 SV% and 2.35 GAA. He's been a real bright spot for the Pack despite the defense being absolute shit. I think there could actually be some potential there. I didn't follow him much at all while he was with Kootenay, but he's absolutely worth watching. I'm really hoping he can keep his play up.
I'm interested in following his development especially with Talbot's future on the team in doubt following the 15-16 season. If Skapski continues his progression we might have a new back up or something better in the system. I'm hoping this isn't a fluke season for him because in any appearance in which I've seen him he's been tremendous.
26-27 tonight. Keeps playing well.
If he was in another teams farm system, he would be getting a lot of press. Because he's part of NY who the media hates, he won't get any credit. Same crap, different year. All the more reason you can't ever listen to the media about any prospect the Rangers have.
Skapski is having a tough year coming off of that surgery. Couldn't hold it down in the AHL with strong play from Hellberg, who has firmly entrenched himself as the starter. Skapski is currently playing in the ECHL sporting a 3.40 GAA and .898 Sv%.
