    Rangers Draft [D] Tarmo Reunanen in 4th Rd (98th) Pick [From ARI]



    Name: Tarmo Reunanen
    Position: D
    Shoots: Left
    Current Team: TPS (Liiga)


    Elite Prospects Profile: http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=221513

    Reunanen is an offensive minded defenceman who can carry the puck, dangle through traffic and set up his teammates. While he relies on his offensive skills, he is not a defensive liability. Poised and calm in his own end. Doesn't shy away from physical play. (EP 2015)

    He and Bodie (if re-signed) are the only offensive defensemen prospects in the system. Glad they nabbed one, hopefully he'll be healthy this year.

    I don't really know much about the kid. With all of the good puck movers available in this draft, I'm not sure why him.

    Seems like a decent sensible kind of pick for a 4th round. Moves the puck but defensively sound as well and not afraid to play the body. Sounds like it checks most of the playoffs requirements boxes to me.
    If n ya gots jowls, they might as well be furry ones.

    Tarmo Reunanen, D, Finland – Poised defender with elite level vision, Reumanen projects as a defender who can kick-start the rush with clean crisp no-look passes. He shows good mobility but there’s some cleaning up to do in that department. It’s his puck handling ability, strong vision and puck distribution skills that make him a top target. 2016 NHL Draft eligible

    An injury caused Reunanen to miss a lot of last season in the Finnish Elite League. He played just 11 regular-season games and two preseason contests for TPS.

    Reunanen benefits from his feistiness and good stick on defense, both of which add to his package. His offensive game and crisp passing have teams talking about him.

    Some news from Finland. Reunanen apparently wasn't getting much ice time fro TPS in Liiga. played in 23 games and registered 3 assists. Will now be playing for Lukko for the rest of the season. They have him slotted on the second pair in his first game tonight. Kids still just 19, turns 20 in March. We'll see what a change of scenery does for him.

    @aj_ranger:Sounds like Reunanen (#NYR) will get to play there, which is what he needs most. Thing I like most about this is that they had been interested in him previously.

    Tarmo Reunanen (#NYR) goes straight into the Lukko line-up for their game against Ilves tonight. Starting on second D pair.
