Rangers Select Igor Shesterkin

With the 118th pick, the Rangers picked Russian goaltender Igor Shesterkin.

Shesterkin is 6’1″, 187 lbs. Red Line Report says he never gets beat by anything clean, only rebounds and deflections. They like his focus and puck handling, but suggest he could use a lot of work on his technique.

The two scouting services I subscribe to were very split on Shesterkin. Red Line Report had him rated as a second rounder and the most underrated player in the draft. ISS did not place him among 20 goaltenders ranked.
