The Rangers have selected Tim Gettinger of Sault St. Marie with the 141st pick.
Gettinger is 6-5, 205 and was teammates with prospect Brandon Halverson.
Future Considerations has him ranked 92nd.
He had 17 goals and 22 assists in the OHL last season and was ranked 28th by Central Scouting at the mid-term and 37th in their Final Rankings of North American skaters.
Gettinger was ranked 73rd by Bob McKenzie.
He was ranked 52nd by The Hockey News who wrote "Gettinger, who played, virtually all his youth hockey in Cleveland, is a behemoth winger only beginning to discover what he's capable of accomplishing. Scouts as well. The offensive numbers have not been dazzling, but talent hawks are more excited about the raw potential. Scouts would like to see him be more competitive and use his size to be more physical. He is a project. "It's a testament to his abilities that he's able to get what he gets done without using all his bigger assets," said a scout. "If he puts those things together you're talking about an absolute home run pick. If not, it's still going to be hard for him not to make it with his size and ability."
From the Rangers: "In the fifth round, the Rangers selected forward Tim Gettinger with the 141st overall pick. Gettinger, 18, skated in 60 games with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) this past season, registering 17 goals and 22 assists for 39 points, along with 32 penalty minutes. The 6-6, 202-pounder established OHL career-highs in several categories in 2015-16, including games played, goals, assists, and points. Gettinger, who participated in the CHL Top Prospects Game in 2015-16, ranked fourth on the Greyhounds in shots on goal (177) during the past season. The Cleveland, Ohio, native also skated in 12 playoff games with Sault Ste. Marie this past season, registering one goal and three assists for four points."
