    Rangers Draft [C] Cristoval "Boo" Nieves With 2nd Round (59th) Pick



    Name: Cristoval "Boo" Nieves
    Position: Center
    Shoots: Left
    Current Team: University of Michigan (NCAA)

    Hockey's Future Profile: http://www.hockeysfuture.com/prospec...stoval_nieves/
    Nieves is a skilled forward with good speed and deft playmaking skills. Although he has the height, Nieves is still a bit on the skinny side and will need to bulk up to better handle the rigors of the pro game. He'll also need to show that he can compete well at a higher level of competition, but most signs point to Nieves becoming a creative offensive player with top-six potential.

    Watch Boo tonight since there's not much hockey on. He'll be taking on Rangers prospect Steven Fogarty and Notre Dame on CBSsports Network. Game starts at 7:30, which is basically now.

    I have pretty high hopes for this kid. He's someone I saw as a late 1st rounder, so I was stoked we got both Skjei and him.

    This kid looks great as a freshman. Pretty impressive how poised he is with the puck, not to mention how big he is for his age.

    Goal and an assist so far with a period to play. Assist was on the PP, nice feed by Boo to the point man for the shot and it was tipped in. Missed the goal cuz I switched over the the Minnesota game to watch Brady Skjei.

    NBC sports has the Nebraska game on if anyone wants to watch Andrej Sustr. He's the big 6-8 Dman that was at our development camp a couple seasons ago and will be the most sought after free agent in college hockey. We may have an inside track.

    Yeah, he looks like a second round steal ala Stepan. He might actually turn out to be better than Stepan

    Too bad Michigan has broken down defensively here in the third.

    Michigan sucks as a team though. I think they recently lost to a U-18 team in a scrimmage.

    It's turns out that Stepan was picked pretty much exactly where he should have been.

    So what's the projection type on this kid? He's got size and skill. We talking power forward?

    He definitely projects as a center. Size, strength, blazing speed, great vision and passing ability, and a good shot. He has a very high ceiling. Patrice Bergeron maybe, but he's faster and a little bigger, so there's probably a better comparison.
