Danny Kristo is likely still one-year away from becoming an NHLer.? (Dobber Hockey)The 2014 Hockey News Pool Guide, which ranks Kristo as the Rangers 7th prospect, has him making the NHL in 2015-16.

  • The 2013 Pool Guide ranks Kristo sixth and also projects him to make the NHL in 2015-16.
If Kristo were to reach his potential, he has the skills to be a Ray Whitney like player (30 goals, 40 assists) but a more realistic projection might be a 20 goal, 20 assist player. He needs to dominate at the AHL level, like he did in college, and use his skills to overcome his size. (Dobber Hockey)

His expected arrival in the NHL is in 2015-16. (NHL.com)

John Giannone, on his Bleeding Blueshirts podcast, asked Jim Schoenfeld about players in Hartford that the Rangers have an eye on.

Schoenfeld said that he hated to name players for fear of leaving one out, but said:

  • "Danny Kristo has very good offensive skills and we have him killing penalties too because we want him to learn to play away form the puck. I don't believe there is anyone in the American league who is good enough offensively to survive in the NHL with that skill alone. They will have to learn to be two-way players in one way or another. They will need to learn how to finish a check, block a shot, learn to be reliable in the defensive zone, in the neutral zone they will have to understand coverage because it's going to be increasingly difficult for them to score. You can't be giving up what you can't get back. We are trying to turn them into two way players."
  • "JT Miller has made another trip back to Hartford. He has skill, people have seen his skill. They have seen him score goals, they have seen a good wrist shot, a good release. They have seen courage and toughness. JT Miller is learning to play away from the puck because it's too risky and the coach doesn't feel comfortable enough to put him on the ice in certain situations. It goes to play and learn rather than stay here and condition."
  • "Dylan McIlrath has made great strides this year. He is tough as nails, a good scrapper, good body checker and he is developing his craft."
